i am just starting out in my photography journey. The past five years or so, i have taken a LOT of pictures, mainly with my smartphoe camera (Samsung Galaxy S3) and a compact camera (first nikon coolpix p50). Now i want to (have to) move on, in order to shoot really good pictures of small metallic parts which have been freshly machined by a cnc machining centre.
Here is an instagram profile by a fellow machininst:
This is just the level of quality i want ro reach. In detail, this means:
-take photos of parts max. 2 inch wide
-being able to have a clear focus on the part, bluring the background
-being able to fully depict the spectral lines visible on freshly machined metallic surfaces
-effectively depict parts as small as 5mm (.2 inch) with a good quality
-cope with not-so-great lights within the machines (optional). tripod usage: yes, possible
-camera + lens total <500€
Well, those might be a pretty specific request. I am looking for a decent DSLR camera to do all this. A friend recommended something like a used canon 50D. Which kind of lenses would be necessary for this job?
Video functinonality is a plus, but not necessary.
Any ideas? I am completely new to the "real" photography world and could not find any sample pictures with this camera that really replicate my demands as described above.
