Photo E says:

This what a great tutorial! I learned so much as a beginner. I have a question…What makes the difference in a photo of flowers you would see in a magazine compared to the photo of flowers you see here in this video? Both are nice photos but the in the magazine photo it has that "professional look" and everything is so much more clear and detailed. Is it the camera itself, a specific camera function being used or is it the lens?

Hello Toby,

I do sincerely thank you for all your valuable videos and I wish you all the best.

I am an amateur photographer and I want to turn pro. I'm basically interested in still imagery, namely Architecture, Decoration, Products and Macro.

I'm using T5i but I want to upgrade to pro level and I'm considering moving to Sony Mirrorless full frame.

Is moving to Sony Mirrorless a good decision? Or investing in 5D MIII and EF lenses, or moving to Nikon D800 something?

What would you recommend?

Thanks again for all your tips and for your advice in advance.
