There are two types of people in the world - those who love being in front of the lens and those who love being behind it. If you fall in the second category then you’re probably already used to your friends randomly posing and asking you to click their pictures! Well, here’s a list of 7 other things you’ll totally relate to if you’re an amateur photographer...
1. You’re rarely in any pictures
Since the time you figured out your passion for photography, you’ve probably been the one behind the camera and are rarely in front of it. Because “you’re the best photographer, na”. Most of you might even hate being in front of the lens because you’ve forgotten how to pose!
2. Love your first camera
There is a very strong bond that you have with your first camera. And when it is a DSLR like the gorgeous Canon EOS 1300D, you simply don’t want to put it down. It’s an entry level camera which is perfect for first time photographers. You’ll love spending time getting to know each and every function it has, like the cool WiFi feature.
3. Never go anywhere without your camera
Whether you’re stepping out for a walk with your mother or going for a drive with your friends, you NEVER leave your camera behind. It’s because you know that if there is an amazing photo opportunity and you don’t have your camera with you, you will regret it for centuries!
4. Goals - save up for a new kit/lens
Your friends may be saving up to buy a new phone or laptop, but your only goal in life at the moment is to buy a new camera! Aspiring new photographers can opt for the new Canon EOS 1300D which has amazing features. The best part is that the body comes with two lenses - EF-S 18-55mm IS II and the EF-S 55-250mm IS II. It is priced at Rs.29,995 for the body and EF-S 18-55mm IS II kit lens and goes up to Rs.38,995 for the camera body with two lenses EF-S 18-55mm IS II and EF-S 55-250mm IS II. So along with having great functions, it is economical too. Start saving, now!
5. Designated family photographer
Your relatives are dependent on you for all their family photography needs. Cousin’s graduation? You have to be there with all your equipment! Uncle and aunt’s anniversary party? You have to capture every guest’s photograph with the hosts!
6. Love to exhibit your pictures
You love to show your photographs to anyone who is interested. And rightfully so! You’re learning a new skill and getting feedback, both positive as well as critical, is always helpful. With the Canon EOS 1300D DSLR, you can showcase your works on social platforms like Facebook and YouTube, with a single tap! Using the CameraConnect app, which is available for both the Android and the iOS platforms, you can save pictures and videos directly from the camera's memory card into your smart device and share it with your friends and family while you're on the go.
7. Don’t want anything to do with phone cameras
Your love for photography was probably supported by your phone cameras before you could get your hands on a DSLR. But now your phone’s camera doesn’t even come to mind when you want to click pictures. Because when you want to take pictures of wonderful candid family moments, you know that a phone camera just won’t do justice to the situation!
