Whenever you see a group of photographers together they all start talking gear. It just seems to be something that people who share a passion do. So podcast episode 015 is my conversation about the gear I use.
Podcast Episode 015 – The Gear I Use
What camera, what lenses, and lots of other stuff. It is a discussion I’m always happy to have. Though when the discussion gets into the technical lingo my eyes glaze over.
I try not to engage in my camera is bigger or better. I think it really doesn’t matter and people should use what they want and how they want. If they love photography then all that matters is that they are taking photos.
This podcast is more than just the gear, but also why I have what I have. Sometimes I think that is really important as well. Why do I have a Nikon camera and why did I stick with it? That is an important question as well.
What gear do you have? Why do you have it?
A photo for today
It seems like a good idea to also show you a photo today.
This was taken a few weeks ago at the Docklands when I was teaching a One On One Photography lesson. We were there during sunset. The Webb Bridge is a popular place to do sunsets from, however, this was taken with the bridge in the image.
You can’t always guarantee a good one, but still, you get what you get. Sometimes you can help it along in post. I choose to do what I wanted. I didn’t try to imitate the sunset but do something a little different.
Experimentation is a great thing to do and I have to admit recently I have been doing a lot of it. Getting out and taking photos hasn’t been a high priority. Going through the thousands of photos that are filling my computer and back up system has been good. So many photos forgotten about are now getting a new life.
