Chapter 9: Equipment for the Children’s Photographer

Considering a Camera Upgrade

Using Interchangeable Lenses

Looking Inside Your Camera Bag

Although the emphasis throughout this book has been that equipment and technology are secondary to making your images of children, it is helpful to have a starting point when purchasing expensive equipment. There are so many equipment options available: where do you start? The choices and preferences are personal and change a bit from photographer to photographer. Making your own decisions depends on your needs, your level of experience, your budget, and even your brand preferences.
