    Really great piece – thank you so much for sharing these tips. I also use a Canon Rebel T3 and it’s great for a beginner like me. Next step – look into and learn more about Lightroom! Thanks for the inspo 🙂

  3. I really enjoyed reading this post, as I am a beginner in photography as well and it’s always interesting to see what gear other people are using!

    I have the Canon Rebel as well, and also love the 50mm lens. It’s just great and is so versatile!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Photography is such an expensive hobby … I’ll need to save up some cash in order to even buy a couple of those things.

    I wish I could figure out Lightroom! I had a pro photog friend of mine attempt to walk me through it and after I got off the phone with him, I forgot everything. So I cheat and use Picmonkey but it’s obviously limited in what it can do. I keep trying to find a good tutorial for Lightroom that isn’t overwhelming but so far no luck.

      Have someone walk you through it in person! I found the interface really intimidating at first – and still am always learning little tricks/ways to use the program more fully – but I’m really glad I switched over to it and got used to the program.

  8. Hey, great post – I felt like I was listening to myself 🙂

    I agree – it’s hard to buy a lot of stuff because it’s too much of a pain to travel with, and you really need to go with the most versatile stuff.

    I also have no clue what I’m doing with my gopro and haven’t found my favorite tripod yet so I just don’t carry one.

    I’m impressed that you just travel with the prime and ultra-wide? I tend to go with a versatile zoom and one specialty lens (prime or ultrawide or extra-fast) depending on what I think the trip will bring.

    Great post! I need to make a similar one!

    Hi, Alana!
    I really liked the post and a fan of the Canon products you mentioned but I love the Sony a6000 and think it is one of the best in the price range for mirrorless cameras. Great post! I also mentioned your blog in my Facebook post this morning as a good read. Loving your content!!!

  10. Tho this article is from 2016, I still do find some great tips here especially for first-timers. Anyway, thank you for sharing and it was really a good read.
