Starting out!

Starting out Gear?:

First and foremost, use the gear you have until you have hit your limit with it, because gear simply doesn't make killer photos— you do! But if you are starting from scratch and want a cheaper option then I recommend the Sony A6000. Again don't let size fool you, this is the camera I traded my Canon 5D3 for and I was getting better image quality and features from this $600 camera than my old $3,000 camera. 11-frames a second, amazing auto focus, and is the perfect camera to enter into the Sony universe. 


I use the Adobe CC Photography bundle for my photos with Lightroom being my main photo editor and file sorting system. For videos, I use Apple's Final Cut Pro X and color all of my work with VSCO X!
