I have been lucky with camera gear. Our first DSLR the D80 was given to hubby as a Christmas present by a client of his. Then when it came time to replace that I was gifted
this DSLR !
Because we have such a fancy cam in the family, we will usually take our own portraits with the help of a remote like this
You will also need a tripod to DIY for those family portraits if you have a DSLR already! Happy shooting!
