What equipment does every photographer need?

Good equipment it’s really critical for a photographer, but what exactly do you need as a professional photographer?

It really depends on what area of photography will you be perusing, so let’s have a look at it step by step.

Portrait photography

As a starting photographer you want to do something where you need as little equipment as possible, like portrait photography. There are just few things that you will need for portrait photography. The first thing it’s quite cheap long lens, it doesn’t even have to be a zoom lenses for that matter. 70mm would be great for the job and of course with your lenses you’ll need a decent body. It be great if you could get a full frame, even some older type like canon mark 2 or 3 are definitely a great option.

When I started with portrait photography I had just a camera and 70mm, for lighting I haven’t spent a dime as I used a window in by bedroom instead of soft box. Of course you can you can take the portrait photos outside, but for that you will need a reflector, to help you get some soft light. Without a reflector your headshots are going to look really unprofessional.

Wedding Photography

Now let’s say that you want to be a wedding photographer. The equipment in that case will be quite expensive. You will have to have two cameras, one with long lens, for the close ups, something like 75-300 would be great. And on the other camera you should have wide lens, something like 18- 50 so you can capture wide angle shots. Benefit of having two cameras it’s that you don’t have to be wasting time by changing the lenses, and missing the important moments that will never repeat. The other reason for that it’s that when you’re photographing events that will never repeat you need to have a backup camera in case that one breaks.

The other thing that you need as a wedding photographer it’s a flash, the reason for that it’s that in churches there’s usually not enough light, and if you don’t want to have all your images underexposed, you have to have it.
