I'm just starting to do makeup and I want to be able to take nice photos of my work. What's a good and affordable camera for Makeup artists that are still in the beginning process and that wont break the bank?
I've tried using my iPhone but I cant seem to take any good photos, I'll even take help on how to use the iPhone camera.
Thank you <3
As you are a beginner you are probably best starting off with a Fujifilm or Nikon, most of there cameras start off around £80 if you are from the uk if not $90-100. They are good cameras and last quite along time! Hope I helped<3

thank you very much!
A tip for your iPhone camera too just in case you're thrown into something without your camera or time handy, get the face tilted to the light so that it reflects evenly and doesn't cast down shadows from facial features (this makes the person look old, tired, and drawn out). Also do not keep your iPhone straight up and down. Tilt it with the light, as it lightens and darkens you'll see how it changed your picture. Once you find the sweet angle, always always focus the camera by tapping on the focus point of the picture. Try not to move after you do this as it will blur your picture. iPhones have a 10 megapixel or larger camera, so it is possible to take decent/good pictures with them. It also may be worth investing in a good photo app or two (free-$5)
