I get SOOO many questions about what camera I use for my photos and videos! I thought I would share a quick post answering some of my most asked questions. This is definitely not sponsored. I genuinely love my camera and tell everyone about it.
What camera do you use for your photos?
What camera do you use for your videos?
Same one- the Sony A6000! Lots of people don’t realize that this camera takes AMAZING videos.
What do you love about the Sony A6000?
Everything! Seriously, I haven’t found anything I don’t like about it. My favorite things are that it’s super lightweight and easy to travel with. I’m not afraid to bring it to the park, disney, out to eat. It’s not bulky and awkward like other cameras. Another thing I love is the FAST AUTOFOCUS. It claims it has the fastest autofocus in the world, but who knows. What I do know is the autofocus is fast enough to capture a running Gracie and the photo comes out crystal clear. That’s gotta be pretty fast. I love the easy to use features. I never used a professional camera before this one. I learned everything photography on the Sony A6000 and it was very easy for me to learn on. This camera has some of the BEST REVIEWS online- so I don’t think I’m alone!
What lens do you shoot with?
Okay, so what I should mention is that you need to buy a better lens than the one that comes with the Sony A6000. I use the 35mm 1.8 lens. But, for a while I was using the 50mm 1.8 lens and both are fantastic. You need to get a great lens for the Sony A6000 because it truly makes a difference with your photos. You know when a photo has a subject in focus and everything else is blurry in the background? You get that effect when you have a lens that has a low aperature (like 1.8).
Do you use a tripod?
I do! I use a tripod for the videos I shoot, but not all that much for photos. I like to hold the camera in my hand while I’m chasing Gracie around LOL. But yes, for video, I definitely recommend a tripod!
How do you edit your photos?
I’m planning on doing a whole blog post on this soon since I get a lot of questions about this. But I use my Sony A6000 to take them, then I use the WIFI transfer to my phone and edit with VSCO + Facetune!
How did you learn photography and videography?
I got my camera the month after Gracie was born – so only about 2 years ago. I wanted to be able to take better photos of her milestones. I ended up watching a million YouTube videos to learn how to use it. And, well, ended up LOVINGGGG it. Like totally loving it. I studied every button of the camera and studied everything I could about photography and videography. And also practice. You can’t learn without taking photos every day. Practice practice practice!
