Learn Photography

A whole new way to learn photography

I’ve spoken with thousands of people who – despite the beginner or even intermediate courses they’ve taken – are still confused about the basic elements of photography. It’s obvious that many traditional methods of teaching photography just don’t work!

I’ve developed my own style of teaching. It’s based on an artist’s natural instincts of curiosity and discovery which quickly produces dramatic results. Through my many free resources on this site and my photography tutorials, you’ll learn about photography in a whole new way. I will help you take your first few steps the path to creating your own kind of art.

Cameras I Recommend

Below is a list of cameras I recommend that should work for any skill level or budget. In addition, I have a more complete list of Camera Lens Reviews that covers all the lens I use for my photography.

Sony NEX-3N

GOOD CAMERA: SONY NEX-3N

Priced at about $499, this Sony mirrorless camera is highly recommended if your budget is keeping you at around the $500 level.

If budget is not a concern, I suggest you jump down to the “Better” or “Best” recommendations. However, if budget is your principle concern, then no worries this Sony is the way to go! One great thing about it is that all the lenses that you get for this camera can also be used when if you decide down the road to upgrade to the Sony NEX-7 below.

Sony NEX-6

Better Camera: Sony NEX-6

Starting at around $750 which includes an 16-50mm lens.

See my full Sony NEX-7 Review (which is not that different than the NEX-6). The only significant difference is that the NEX-7 has a few more megapixels. The NEX-6, on the other hand, counteracts that with much faster autofocus for better performance in low light. I use it to take photos of everything, from kids to landscapes to architecture to objects.

Sony a7R Mirrorless Camera

Best Camera: Sony a7R

Starting at just over $2000.

A full-on Sony a7R Review is here on the site that is full of a ton of sample photos. This is currently my main camera. I absolutely love it. It has all the power of the giant DSLR systems at a fraction of the price and size. It’s Full-Frame goodness combined with a small mirrorless form factor gives you everything you need. Plus, the camera smarts inside are absolutely insane. Check out my review to learn more!

Software you need

I’m constantly trying new things, but I only review stuff that I actually use. That should help keep the clutter down and keep you focused on the best stuff out there. I hope these reviews are of benefit to you in your lifelong adventure of photographic fortune and glory.

I have many more photo software reviews of packages I’ve used and recommend.
