Cameras and Coffee – The Essential Gear for Photography

When you first get started in photography, you get way too into photography gear. Cameras, lenses, tripods, and everything else you think you might need to take stunning photos.

While gear is important, it’s more important to remember that gear is just a tool, and your knowledge of photography matters more than the arsenal of lenses you have.

With that being said, you still need a camera, a couple lenses and some other tools to shoot easily!

My list for photographers is as follows:

  • Camera
  • Wide angle lens
  • Mid range lens (like a 50mm)
  • Telephoto Lens

That’s it! If you have those in your bag then you can shoot just about anything! And the best part is that it won’t set you back thousands of dollars! Here’s a breakdown of my bag and what should be in yours…
