A reader sent an email with the following question –
Neel, I have a beginner DSLR and would like to upgrade to advanced DSLR. However, I am also thinking of buying a Mac (and Lightroom 3). I don’t have budget to buy both, what would you recommend I should buy first?
Thanks for your question. In my opinion, the answer depends on what your purpose is. If you earn money with food photos (or are thinking to do so), I would say having a better camera something with good megapixel (like this powerful new Nikon D7000) will serve you better. When I say this I am assuming you are using some decent post processing software.
I do think digital darkroom has a big role these days and understanding and learning how to process your food images is important. If you have a decent camera, I would buy Lightroom 3. I use Mac and PC and don’t think having a Mac is essential for better photos.
