Find the right digital camera for any experience level
From beginner to pro, you need the right photography equipment to capture memories and get the job done. The trick, of course, is to know what gear you need at each stage to help you stay ahead of the learning curve and get the most out of your camera. Unlike basic camcorders, which often aren't compatible with extra attachments, most digital SLR options come with plenty of accessories and lens options to keep you busy for years to come. From spare batteries to digital picture frames, stock up on the right items to meet all your photography needs at Kmart.
If you are a newcomer to the world of photography, you can still start with a great camera setup that will help you take amazing pictures as you learn the ropes. Opt for a digital SLR camera with an auto mode. In addition to your camera, you'll want a sturdy strap and a protective carrying case. Choose a camera bag that offers room to store new lenses and accessories as you get more comfortable with your camera. A UV filter will help you protect your lens and get better photos, especially when you are outdoors. Finally, don't forget a tripod so that you can still be in those family photos.
If you're comfortable with the basics of photography, consider intermediate gear. Explore new lenses, such as zoom lenses that help you get up close to the action or instead opt for close-up lenses that offer a shorter depth of field, keeping the focus on your subjects. Play with new and different filters that enhance colors, reduce glare, or give your photos a soft glow. Also, it doesn't hurt to invest in some backup items like spare batteries and chargers as well as extra memory cards. As you get more familiar with your camera, you may want to use a full flash instead of using the factory flash. You will be amazed at how you can change the lighting in your photos just by changing the angle of your flash.
For advanced photographers, there are a lot of options. You could expand your lenses, or you could set up a home studio. A couple of large flash bulbs and some reflectors will help you direct your light where you want it to go. In addition, you can choose from a variety of backdrops and props to keep your photographs interesting and modern. Whatever you choose, Kmart is here to help. Start your camera equipment setup with us, where you will find all the basics at affordable prices that help you get started.
