Here is a small story about how I knew I wanted to go into the photography field, and my experience with cameras.
When I was about 10 years old, I started attending Camp Birch Hill. I attended that camp for about seven years after that. It was always an eye opening experience, and I loved it so much. At this camp we could pick classes as part of our schedule for each day. I saw that photography was one of them and thought, Why not? Well, that's where my story begins. Ever since I picked up my first camera at Camp Birch Hill I have been inspired. I liked capturing the moments that would only ever happen once.
My first camera was a point and shoot Fujifilm that was my moms, she wasn't thrilled that I stole it... This was a beaten camera after it had been taken to football games, and tossed around by all my siblings. There were a few cracks in the lens, but I made it work. In 2016 I bought myself a SonyA200, this cameras life was very short lived. Less than a month after I bought it, I broke the LCD screen with my knee after dropping it off a desk, and then I broke the auto focus in the lens when I tapped it on a trailer. Needless to say I was very upset with myself. I suffered with not being able to see a playback of the images, but I did get myself a new lens. Christmas that same year, I was gifted a Canon EOS Rebel T6. I was so happy and eager to try it out. That camera still works and functions properly to this day. Most recently I decided to go back to Sony. I still hadn't picked my brand, and I did a lot of research and decided that I would like to go to mirror less. Sony has had mirror less cameras the longest, and are better well rounded than other companies who produce competing cameras. I purchased the Sony A7ii in May of this year. And I'm in love with it!
