you probably get this a lot (sorry) but what kind of camera do you use / what's a good way to put down the iPhone camera and get into photography without breaking the bank?
I use any camera that is within reach. I actually dont think you should put down the iphone if youve been practicing with it. Camera gear is so expensive. You can easily get a bunch of Moment lenses that clip unto the back of your iphone and they tranform your the pcitures you take. But if you want to know so much about gear.
I shoot with
a Canon 6d
a Canon 17-35mm f/2.8 L (has a drop of water in it)
a Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
a Canon EF 50mm 1.8
and a Canon EF 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6
a good starting point would be
a Canon t5i
a Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6
Hope This Helps. Have a Wonderful Day
