My Camera Bag
For those of you that may read my blog who are more interested in the technical side of photography, more so than just looking at the pictures, I really want to share some of what I have learned along the way with you! People often ask me what kind of equipment I use when shooting. Two or three years ago, I would have said something completely different, but after working in the field a while, I have come to realize the significance in quality equipment. And by that I mean, unfortunately, very expensive. After using a variety of different camera bodies and lenses, I have witnessed the extreme difference in quality. I feel much more confident with the work I can produce with a quality set up. It's kind of like going into a big math exam with a TI-83 versus a four-function calculator. You just feel a little more capable with the TI-83. Of course, you can't completely rely on the calculator itself, you must understand it fully and your knowledge must extend that of the calculator. Regardless, you just feel a little more confident with the result it will produce and the likeliness it will give you more flexibility and options in order to get your final result. For those of you just starting our or those that do not intend to use photography as a main source of income, this equipment list is not practical. However, if you are shooting weddings and quality is of most importance, then this may be something you eventually will work towards. When I first started out, I would get frustrated when my fave photographers would post their equipment list but not say why they liked that particular lens or what they used it for, so hopefully this will help some of you out!
- Canon 1Dx (my camera), Canon 5D Mark III (secondary camera) – Both of these camera bodies are pristine! The 1D's have full frame sensor's so that no cropping occurs inside the camera. You can achieve wider perspective with this camera body than you can with Canon 50D and below. This full frame sensor allows for a higher dynamic range providing lower noise at high ISO levels. There are so many other features about these cameras that are amazing, but the sensor is my main selling point. You can scope out the other specs at www.amazon.com or www.adorama.com
