6 Tips For The Beginner Photographer or Videographer – TréCreative Tips&Tricks

We both remember the time in our life when we each bought our first DLSR camera. I was about to graduate from high schoool and just wanted a really nice DSLR to document all the camp adventures I would be going on. I literally knew nothing how to compose a photo properly, what certain settings meant, or even how to use lightroom. My parents were a bit skeptical, as they rightfully should have been. Five hundred dollars for an eighteen-year-old was a lot of money especially since I just wanted it for my own personal pleasure!

Stephen’s first camera purchase was much nicer than mine. He was a sophomore in college studying Film Production at Biola University during our “long distance days”. As he was studying film and media arts, and intended on using his major. You can imagine it was pretty important he had his own camera instead of constantly having to rent one from the media department. During his Christmas break, he began selling anything and everything around the house that could make him money. He sold his old drum set, old cell phones, books, basically anything lying around that he no longer used, he sold on craigslist or eBay. So you could say thanks to internet, Stephen was able to afford his first DSLR camera, a Canon 60D.
