Why spend tons of money on a professional photographer when you can take them yourself. These are great photography equipment for any beginner wanting to take their own professional pictures at home.
The most important item to have is your a camera. This is the camera I use and I’ve always been a huge fan of canon. I like this camera because its smaller, but still gives you that professional looking image. I can easily carry this around in my purse without it being to bulky.
The autofocus system that canon has is really fast and accurate, which is definitely helpful when taking pictures of babies. The ability to use the different manual mode is what will make a big difference in your photos. They have a portrait mode on this camera that will do the focus for you to get that professional look.
This camera is also great for taking videos. If you’re interested in taking more videos of your family this is a great camera. The screen can flip forward and backward making it easier for vlogging as well.
My favorite feature is being able to send the pictures to my phone through bluetooth. I download an app on my phone and get them right away!
When it comes to your pictures looking professional, lighting is key. It’s important to have two lights to get rid of shadows. You can easily pack these up and take them whenever you need to go. They nicely adjust in length and angle of the light. They will quickly become worth your investment.
Adobe Lightroom CC App
I liked that this app was free and that’s what drew me to it. It’s more than $200 a year to use this program on your computer and you can use it for free on your phone. Stop using any other editing apps and just use this one! This will cover everything you need to edit photos and make them look professional.
You have probably noticed that people are now making and selling presets that they use on their accounts. This app is how you can use those presets after you buy them. You can also make your own presets and use them again for yourself. If you use the canon camera I mentioned above, you can quickly get the photos to your phone and edit them with this app.
