Love of Photography

Ha! Super excited to see this section.
I am hugely into photography and it has become effectively become my second job.

I'm predominantly into portraitures, but have shot cars in the past. (to think of it, I still have my rolling rig setup)

Hey! These are good! Since you’re an expert in this, what camera do you use or would you recommend that’s above entry level! TIA.

Depends on your budget Camera/lenses/light are brushes and the paint, its up to you to make the image.

I own 2x d750's & 2x d800's and slew of Nikon lenses. My favorite camera is a 6 year old d800. it has 150k actuations, and recently got it serviced by NPS with a new shutter box. I paid $700 for a 6 year old pro camera and paid $200 to refurb it. If you check sites like dxomark.com and check the rankings for each camera, you will see d800 still comes in at #11 and still kicks ass.

I would suggest getting an old professional camera such as 5dmk3 or d800, as they are built like tanks.

Hope that helps.

Super helpful! Thanks a lot! I’ll look into the two that you mentioned! I’ll be brand new to photography burn it’s something that I’ve always wanted to try out. Maybe a couple blogs here and there. Just something new to pick up you know? And I know it would be easier to just get a baseline camera and work my way up but in hoping I’m gling to enjoy it and so I might as well get something that I’ll have for the long run. I stead of dropping more money later down the road. What do you think? Any other advice? Lenses? Planning on taking a class on photography at school as well. Sorry for the long post, this is an interest for me!

Bodies are consumables and lenses are heirlooms.

Buy a manual capable body and a good fixed prime to learn with. Zooms at lower price points are, imo, garbage.

With prices of d800 and 5dmk3 hovering around $1k there is no reason to buy new cameras anymore. sensor technology have pretty much plateaued.

I had NPS send out a d850 (brand new $3.5k body) to me to eval, and while it was nice in most ways, the resulting images and its raw depths were no different than my old d800. Nevertheless I sent it back.

gl w ur search. photography is fun, and pays well if you are good. weddings and hs seniors where all my car money comes from.
