Looking to purchase a camera for a loved one this holiday season?
Here's my biggest tip.
All semi-pro and pro cameras can take lovely photographs. I shoot with a Nikon, but I used to shoot film on a Canon. I know folks that use Sony and other brands. They're all wonderful. It's all about what a person likes and is comfortable with in terms of buttons, screens etc.
You'll find a lot of 'this is better than that' out there, but my advice is that it's the user that makes the photograph. The tool needs to fit your needs.
So start with what the person wants to photograph and work from there.
Do they want to shoot flowers? A good macro lens may be a good fit.
Sports? A camera that can take fast shots.
Portraits? There's a few timeless type portrait lenses out there like a 50mm and an 85mm. Incredibly flattering.
For the person looking for a doodad that can enhance their photography, I recommend a reflector. You'd be surprised how much a simple reflector can change the look of your photographs.

Katie has a great blog post about white balance.
If you've ever wondered why your photos are colored the way they are this may help you clear up the mystery!
My ultimate goal is always timeless, classic looks. I'm a huge fan of cameo pendants, classical portraits and paintings, and the pulp artwork of Robert McGinnis.
I've been told that my signature look is the 'Mona Lisa' smile. You'll see it throughout my work and I can capture it for you, of you, too. There's a reason why everyone always wonders what she's wondering about! It's truly a flattering expression on every woman that has stood the ultimate test of time.
I'm also enjoying using more dramatic lighting - and as always making clients feel welcome and beautiful. I truly see your beauty and want to show it to you.
So excited to debut my new set. If you want soft, timeless glamour, this is the ticket. These photographs will look just as lovely in 20 years as the day they were taken with this timeless look. Plus, it features the green chair!
