I'm not a photographer and I know absolutely nothing about cameras. One thing I do know is that my iPhone camera is quite rubbish for taking head shots. I've recently become very interested in photography and it's literally just happened overnight. I really can't explain it but I know it's going to be new hobby of mine.
I was reading this: http://stepheneastwood.com/tutorials/len...
and realised my photos always come out like 35mm, 24mm, 19mm. They change the shape of my face and exaggerate my features.
I'd like to start out taking head shots then move out to full body shots later on with a different camera. But for I'd like to buy a camera and lens to start out with. I want to make up for the lack of photos I've taken in the last few years.
If you could provide different options that would be great. Also would a camera that also record video mean a sacrifice in quality in regards to photos? Just wondering if I need to go for a camera that takes photos only. Looking spend under £500, £500 would be max as this would be my first camera.
From the article i read I gathered that 135mm lens would be the best to go for. I've also been told I'd need a tripod also. I've asked this question on yahoo also and have the Nikon 5100 has been recommended.
With a little tweak it may be what I'm looking for. I really would like to see what everyone seems to be in favour of when starting out.
Thanks for your time. I look forward to the responses. Kind regards.
