Top 10 Camera Tips For Becoming a Better Photographer

If you get serious about photography, invest in good lenses – Remember your minidisk player? Well that lovely new camera body you just got will seem just as outdated in two years time. Not so with lenses. A good lens is eternal. It will hold its value (sometimes increasing in value), and will continue to serve you well on every new camera body that comes out. A good lens will give you crisp edges, sharp contrast, increased detail, and higher quality background blurs (aka bokeh effect). Sure, good lenses cost more, but they’re also the most important part of your camera.
