I’ve been getting a lot of photography related questions and emails lately. A lot of you want to know what camera I shoot with, what lenses, etc. So I thought I’d take a quick minute to share all that info with you here.
The funny thing about sharing everything that’s in my camera bag via picture, is that I can’t actually use my fancy camera to take the picture, so this is courtesy of my husband’s iPhone4.
Canon EOS Rebel T2i
Canon 50 mm 1.4 This was my first and only lens for a long time. I ADORE it. It is super sharp and I love shooting with it wide open. I just get a little irritated with how tight of a crop it is on my camera.
Canon 55-250 4.0-5.6 (my only zoom) I really haven’t used this one very much at all. Scott got it for me for Christmas, and I think it’s going to be a great lens to have when we take trips this summer to the zoo or the beach. I expect it will be a good one for shooting Kendall’s sporting events, too.
Sigma 30 1.4 This is my new baby. I’ve only had it a few days and really haven’t had the chance to shoot with it at all, but the test shots I’ve done have made me confident this is going to spend a lot of time on my camera. The 50 produces amazing results, but I can barely fit everything in the frame unless I get far enough away from my subject. This will allow me to take pictures of more than one person much easily while in the confines of the walls of my house.
Macro extension tubes I want to figure these out so badly and play with them! I just haven’t had the time to sit down and try.
Polaroid .42x Fisheye Lens with Macro I’m going to be honest, I have no freaking idea how this thing works. In theory, it sounds awesome, and I’m pretty sure that’s what Santa was thinking when he put it in my stocking last year. Unfortunately, Santa doesn’t give lessons and I don’t have much time to dig up hard to find info on how to operate this one.
Remote Shutter Release This is a cheapie, another stocking stuffer from Santa. It works great as long as you’re not too far from it. It claims up to 16 feet, but I’d argue that’s too far.
The Pretty Things:
Everything (and then some) rides in my trusty Epiphanie Paris bag (blinged out with a little Mabel’s Labels swag from Blogher ’10).
I also have a very nice tripod my sister got for me for Christmas, which has been handy for taking family pictures.
