What Camera Is Best? It Depends!

We avoid stating what camera, lens, or software is ‘best.’ The truth is that there is no such thing! The answer to ANY question in photography goes like this: “It depends!” it depends on what you are shooting, it depends on the light, it depends on the lenses you have, and it depends on the maximum ISO you have. And on, and on, and on. 

In fact, the best camera may even be your phone!

You Probably Do Not Need New Gear

We do not think you need new equipment. Your camera can still take the same pictures today that it could when you bought it. Our plan is to teach you how to use it much more effectively.

  • To never cram different levels into our courses; if a class has ‘beginner’s’ in the title, it is indeed a beginner’s course.
  • To keep it fun!
