Most photographers like to list out their equipment, and I am part of that sheep-like crowd!
Equipment often used:
- Canon EOS 400D
- Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II kit lens
- Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 II USM (avail as a kit lens but I bought mine separately)
- Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX-DC (this is my pride and joy, and it spends 99% of its time mounted)
- Generic 0.42x wide-angle macro screw-in filter (screws apart to be macro only).
- Apple iPhone 4 (using the CameraPrime and Instagram apps)
- Car – in previous years, I travelled a lot for work and got to experience a lot of South East Queensland from behind the steering wheel.
- Bike – I ride a lot around Brisbane, city and suburbs, and it provides a great perspective, plus it’s easy to pull up and snap a shot off (no need to find a parking spot)
- Feet – I also walk a fair bit. In a short lunch break, the range is limited, but the city is rich with photographic opportunities. I spend a lot of my time walking around looking up. This often results in a photo, but even when it doesn’t, there’s a lot of beautiful things 10m and more above eye level.
- Train – not many photos to be had on the train, but I can get in a good 50 minutes of photo editing and blogging each direction
Equipment rarely used:
- Canon EOS 1000F (film camera – simple but decent backup body)
- Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II (outclassed in every way by the Sigma 30mm, but still useful as backup)
- Canon 420EX flash (I only use this for portraiture, otherwise I always* shoot with available light)
- Reflecter kit (for portraits)
- Flash diffuser (for portraits)
