“I started off using film, then point & shoot,
then DSLR. I have dabbled in portrait
photography. I have accumulated a lot of
expensive gear that I don’t use all the time” -
“I like to rent gears when I'm doing a shoot
or traveling. When I went to shoot some
wildlife, I would rent a long zoom lens.
That'd give me plenty of space between
me and them. After all, nobody wants to
get eaten by a bear” - Victor
“I'm a newbie but i want to take better
pictures and if that means I need better
gear but I'm not ready to invest $2k for
lens/gear- someone please educate me.
Also would love to try before buy.” -
