My photography has improved dramatically since I’ve started blogging (or so I like to think).

Photography is what initially attracts me to any blog post or article so I decided to get more confident behind the lens and learn some new skills to improve my content.

You’ve probably heard it before but it’s true that you don’t need all the latest mod con’s to start a blog/vlog as the great Casey Neistat demonstrates in this clip.

If you really want to get going with a project or blog, you can do it today. All you need is a device that takes half decent pictures. Whether it be your mobile you use every day or a point and shoot camera you have lying around.

It’s being creative and having a niche that’ll make you stand out from the crowd.

With that being said, if you want to invest in a camera there are plenty on the market to choose from.

The majority of my pictures are taken with my HX300 Sony. It has a 50x optical zoom, is easy to use and is a steal for under £300. In my opinion, it’s a perfect first DSLR camera.

I’ve bought a tripod, GorillaPod and a GoPro in the last year but even with a few more gadgets to hand nothing has had as much worth (and use) as my camera.

The Sony DSLR has served me well.

Here are a couple of shots I’ve taken with it. For the sake of this post, below are pictures that haven’t been edited so you can see their true quality.

 

 

Moving onto the GoPro Hero 5 Session.

If you’re an adrenaline junky the GoPro is well worth the purchase. Otherwise think long and hard before splashing a few hundred on one, as you might not get as much use out of it as you’d hoped.

Despite me using it just a handful of times it is without a doubt the most practical piece of camera equipment I’ve got my hands on. You can fit it in the smallest of spaces and can connect the device to your phone with the capture app to see exactly what you’re shooting. Cool eh?

The add-ons for the GoPro are endless; if you’re a GoPro newbie I’d recommend opting for the 3-Way Grip Arm Tripod. It’s the ultimate selfie stick with a built-in tripod. Genius!

Here’s a clip I took to show you the comparison between a picture and video.

What camera equipment do you use as a blogger? What are your essentials and the gadgets you couldn’t live without?
