ESSENTIALS


When you're done taking pictures you will need to get the images from your camera to your computer. Many cameras have the ability to transfer files through a provided cable but this is not recommended. If your computer has a memory card reader you don't need an external reader.

The easiest way to protect your investment is to purchase a filter for the front of your lens. These filters are a physical barrier from the outside world and your lens glass. On the front or side of your lens there is a number that is generally 58mm-72mm to indicate the size you need to order.

When you get your new camera you will be taking so many pictures. The images that todays cameras produce are large files and will quickly overload your computer. This external hard drive will provide storage for your image collection and allow your computer to maintain its functionality.

If you plan to take landscapes or low light images a tripod is necessary. It is impossible to hold a camera still at slow shutter speeds or in low light. This tripod is also rated for up to 19lbs so it will hold a quality camera and lens combination.

Some camera come with bags. Thee bags are typically not as comfortable as you would like for a long adventure. The sling style or backpack style camera bags are super comfortable. When it is easy to carry with you, you will carry it more often and have more opportunities to capture the moments.

Now that you have taken beautiful images you will need to edit them. Almost every image that you see has been edited in some form. These two programs are the workhorses of the photography world. Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop will give you the ability to create almost anything.

Editing software is a very intense program that requires a lot of power. If you are in the market for an upgrade you should consider a few things. The RAM (random access memory) of the machine should be at least 8 gb or higher. This will allow the computer the ability to process many tasks at once and keep your workflow flowing.
