In today's world of photography you need to make a name for yourself by being unique in your shooting and editing techniques. Everyone out in our society takes photos using everything from cell phones to DSLR's. I myself am using a Canon Rebel T5i as that is what I upgraded to after my Canon Rebel T3. Once my business picks up I would eventually like to upgrade to a top of the line but at this time I still have many things to learn with this one. Just a couple days ago I put my skills to the test as I attempted shooting fireworks for the first time. I believe they turned out good but I could still tweak them some and continue to learn.
Everyone asks what type of lens should I use for best the photos. I would have to say that truly depends on what your subject is. I currently shoot most of my photos right now with a 55-250mm telephoto lens. In the house I use my lens that came with my camera which is the standard 18-55mm. I am quite excited to share though that I just purchased a 50 mm fixed lens for portraits and a 420-800 mm telephoto for my wildlife photos. I can't wait for them to come in so I can try them.
Haley's comet photography would like to hear what you have for lens and a camera body and share with us your views of best lenses to use.
