I am not an equipment buff. I am glad when I finally have what I need and don’t have to buy anything else! I just want my gear not to get in the way of my workflow and vision while shooting. It has to be transparent in a way, so I can see what I am doing without being annoyed by quirks and errors in my tools. So there are two main things I’ve learned about camera equipment. One: gear is really, really important! Because I want to take consistently high-quality images, and be able to rely on my gear in tough situations, I have invested in high-quality equipment. Two: gear is worthless if not combined with skill and knowledge. A $3000 camera with a $1500 lens doesn’t automatically make good photos – I have to know how to operate it. So along with showing you what cameras, lenses and lighting stuff I use, I’ve also linked some of the places online where I’ve learned the most about photography.
