    Equipment

    Hey

    I'm pretty new at this - photographing and all, so I hope that you guys can help me.

    I'd like to start taking pictures of different objects.

    Mostly of flowers - I love flowers.

    What kind of equipments do I need if I want to take pictures like the ones on this page?

    I'm Danish, so I use a Danish example.


    Do you need any special lenses or studio equipments?

    And what computer program should I use for editting?

    Looking forward to hear from you guys!

    Any DSLR will get you started and then you can build off of it with better lenses and lighting. As far as computer anything will really do but eventually you may want to get a large high quality monitor.

    Lots depends on what you plan to do in the medium/long term, as well as on your budget.

    Assuming :
    - this is your first DSLR,
    - you are happy with taking captures of flowers, persons and landscapes
    - you don't want to make money out of it

    As regards the camera I'd suggest to go to a camerashop, looking for a DSLR with changeable lenses. See which feels best in your hands and fits your budget.

    Best is to get a kit, including the camerabody, 1-2 lenses, a memory card, and eventually some other gadgets like a camerabag.

    While number of brands will offer good cameras, when you go with either Nikon, Canon or Sony, you are likely to find later on the largest choice of extra lenses, including from third party producers (Sigma, Tamron, ...)

    For a first lens, you will like to cover approx. focal lenghts between 18-140mm; with the type of flowerbouquets in your example likely having been taken with focal ranges between 60 and 110mm.


    If you have been to the camerashop, but still have doubts, take note of the brand, model and lens and post a short selection here for further advice.


    A regards computer programs to process your pictures, the camera may come along with some software included. Also, your computer may already have some software included.

    Gain it will depend on what you want to do. Some more advanced photo editing software that you could use (provided you have a recent computer) could be:
    - DXO
    - Adobe Lightroom
    - Affinity
    - ...
    Just to name a few

    Agree totally. Currently, forget about which computer to use. Just capture photos and enhance your photography skills likewise.

    It depends to what kits you prefer using and for softwares that you can easily adapt. As for me, I currently testing Nikon d850 and I'm satisfied with it.
