well haha it depends on what you mean to do with it…
look cute in pictures? or stay dry in a downpour?
I would recommend looking for something at REI or sporting goods store. lots of selection and colors and brands etc. I guess if you’re looking for more trendy rain jackets, try places like Topshop, Modcloth, Urban Outfitters (where I bought my mens XL yellow rain jacket on sale lol)…
Thank you! Perhaps my story will give you some insight…
I started on a Canon T2i dslr about two years ago. I literally knew nothing about how to work a dslr at the time… that camera was a perfect starting point. The interface is really friendly, and the image quality (depending on your lens) is wonderful. Canon, Nikon, Sony, and Pentax all have some pretty reasonable amateur dslr cameras. I would recommend looking into those companies and figuring out what fits your price point.
I still use my T2i camera body, but I’ve upgraded lenses since then. Starting with a kit lens (of whatever camera you purchase) is great because it provides the perfect basis for learning what kind of photography you like to do.
…like I found that I love shooting landscapes and taking portraits of people. Ended up buying a 28mm f/1.8 and it’s been perfect for me.
I post genuine photos… I put a lot of soul and energy into being the best image maker / photographer I can possibly be.
Post only (with exceptions, of course) your best work, and post consistently. be friendly and reach out to other photographers on their blogs.
Personally, I never strategized on how to gain exposure, I just sort of went along with the ride and made friends with other great people who make wonderful images.
Nope! I was shooting with an iPhone 4 for a couple recent weeks because my 4s kept malfunctioning. But then I got it fixed right before I left for Germany, so everything you see now is shot and edited on that.
Dear Zachary should come with a emotional disclaimer because I’m pretty sure I violent sobbed my way through the entire fucking thing. That shit is soul napalm.
