I love watching photography videos on YouTube. It’s relaxing, informative and very enjoyable. Now bear with me here, I’m all for learning through videos and finding out new photography techniques and ideas however that won’t help your photography. Continue reading
I have a confession to make, I suffer from G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome). I don’t want to spend a lot of money on new lenses so I look towards older, vintage, manual lenses, which are cheap and fun to use but don’t offer the same image quality as modern lenses. Gotta catch’em all!
