You’ve just splashed out a vast sum of money on a shiny new camera to do amazing travel photography, but what’s next? There are so many different lenses, accessories, and even filters to choose from. Most people would not be able to afford to buy everything they need in one go. So what should you buy first?
Fear not, here is a simple guide on what to purchase, and in what order, after you have bought a new camera.
It may seem pretty obvious but you won’t be able to do much without a lens for your camera, so naturally, this should be the first purchase.
But the lens you choose will impact on the quality of your photos. For travel photography, you will be able to get away with only using one lens most of the time so try to buy the best lens that you can afford. Look for something that has a good focal length range and is fairly fast.
Something like a 24-70mm lens will often mean you can get 95% of the shots that you would take.
