Bogota Photography Meetup & Workshop
Thanks for attending!
We had so much fun and we’re so glad that you were able to attend our photography workshop. We want to share some of the resources that we mentioned during our talk in case you wanted to check them out. If you’d like to view our presentation, view it on Google slides.
Good beginner cameras
- Sony a6000. Dan owns this camera and it’s an amazing deal for the price.
- Canon M50. This is our pick for a solid travel camera. It’s small and lightweight, yet powerful and offers good photo and video features.
- Google Pixel 2. We both own this phone and the picture quality is amazing. The camera app updates often and the photos keep getting better and better.
- Apple iPhone 7 (and above). iPhones have great cameras and every version above the iPhone 7 has a decent camera to work with.
- GoPRO HERO7. This is the best GoPRO update yet! The stabilization and improved audio are enough to want this camera. I own the HERO5 and am currently considering an upgrade.
Editing your pictures
We’ve included a link to download our Lightroom catalog. Feel free to explore the different sliders in Lightroom and make your own edits with these files!
