How To Get Into Photography (Without Being A Dick About It)

So: you love taking pictures on your phone and want to upgrade to some fancier equipment. But where do you start? How do you know how much to spend on a camera? And where will you go to take great pictures?

It can be pretty overwhelming to start the search for a professional-grade DSLR and figure out just how much to spend on your new hobby. This is a guide for someone who wants to take and share cool pictures, without being, well, a dick about it — you don’t need filters, a huge lens kit, or a sponsor to send you to Iceland to capture a decent image.

In the video above, photographer Tyson Wheatley goes over what to look for in a new camera, and then takes us and his Leica Q around his neighbourhood to show how the best photos can come out of everyday moments.
