I’ve recently become interested in taking my own modeling pics. These would be from 4-7 ft away, usually in sub-optimal/natural lighting. I’ve used a friend’s Canon Rebel T6 before, but it did so badly with the lighting (dark-ish room with a few spots of direct sunlight) that the camera from their iphone xr took better pictures. i’m not sure whether i should drop $600 on a phone like theirs, or whether spending it on a real camera would be a better investment, given the lighting restrictions (and a self-timer function would be necessary). I know next to nothing of photography and am trying to save money, so you guys have any recommendations or ideas, please let me hear them. Thank you

You have not commented back in regards to other's postings,

so don't really know what your thoughts are in all responses.


Depending on your needs,

and what image quality required,

using a phone camera maybe sufficient.


Buying a camera body is just part one of the equation,

then will need to buy a lens adequate for low/lower lights,

often that means a lens capable of at least f/2.8 or better (such as f/1.8).


Below is a picture from my iphone 6 camera,

the lens from the iphone 6 is capable of f/2.2, which is good.
