I'm curious to see how many TSR users are artists .
If you are, how do you balance making art along with academic endeavours? I had to kinda abandon drawing n stuff; maybe I could have balanced life better lol .

BONUS: If you'd like, post a pic of your art in this thread! I'd love to see what you've created.

hi,

i would recommend the canon 1300D, 18-55mm lens, not too expensive, really good for beginners.

I draw/paint in trad and digital medium a bit, and mess around with photography (I have a couple of film cameras). Did it until GCSE, was hoping to go into game art, but then sort of got a bit disheartened by how little I was improving. Have never been as into it since :emo: but I still try!

I love drawing and admiring artwork! Seriously passionate about it but never got the chance to do it for A level or GCSE; I didn't want to turn my hobbies into a chore.

Absolutely, plenty of recommendations tbh.

What do you intend to take pictures of? do you have any specific interest like landscape or food, etc? that would be key in determining lens type if you go for camera with interchangeable lenses (a proper camera that is :P).

Can't go wrong with Canon 200D or Nikon D5600. For landscapes, you need what's called wide-angle lenses, whereas for street photography and "portraits" (people, really), standard 50mm or 35mm lenses will be just fine. Get a starter 18-55mm kit. It's not the best you can do but you can get separate lenses as you learn about shutter speed, aperture, etc.

Get a book on basic photography and you will learn these things in no time. And get moving ofc :P.
