TK's Recommended Camera Equipment

Navigating the world of camera equipment can be tricky! We're here to help with a few basic recommendations for those looking to invest in their photo capturing equipment.

For a DSLR, our quickest tip is to put most of your investment in the lenses.  A good camera body is important but not as important as a good versatile lens or a variety of lenses for different situations.

For Cell Phone Cameras,  if you have an iphone you are pretty solid!  We are android users and I recently just upgraded form the Samsung S4 to the S6 primarily for the increase in image quality and abilities to take images in a variety of settings.
