Does anyone have suggestions for equipment? I'm an artist, not a photographer, and have only a pocket size digital camera for snapshots. What should I buy? I find my biggest problem is just holding the camera still.
Lorraine Wilson Mar 13, 2010 at 06:28 PM

If you want a camera that helps you keep the image still, get one with IS, or Image Stabilization. It helps a lot! The current small digital cameras are very good--certainly no longer "point & shoot," since much of what they can do is computerized. If you are primarily an artist interested in taking photos to refresh your memory for painting, then think what you need when using a photo that way--zoom lens? one that adjusts to various amounts of light? close ups? Most every digital camera will do this. I use a Canon Powershot with IS and love it. I also have a Canon digital Single Lens Reflex camera with adjustable lenses, but do not think that's always necessary. I especially like the Powershot for hiking or just walking around, not knowing if I might need to take a photo. There are also in-between cameras for those who do not need all the features of an SLR. If you want a tripod, there are small Joby tripods that twist into any shape, if you don't want to invest in a large one. You might want to take a photo class with the camera you have and learn more about using it, what it can and cannot do, before deciding what to invest in.

Wow! What a thorough response. I have a lot of research to do, for I also need the capacity to better photograph my paintings. My current camera is a digital Nikon Coolpix S200, which I admittedly have not yet mastered. I use a MacBook Pro computer without any special software other than the iPhoto program which was preloaded. I also have an excellent HP Officejet Pro L7500 printer. The Joby tripod sounds like a winner, so I've already ordered one from Amazon.com. Thank you very much for helping me out. So much to learn, so little time. What great people I encounter with Road Scholar!!
