I guess that brings me to what gear I do use…I shoot with a Nikon D7100 Cropped sensor camera, usually I shoot with a 50mm Prime Lens, but lately have been using a 18-55mm lens as well. I also shoot with a 18-200mm lens while out and about, but it lacks the really high F/Stop. I do also used a 10-20mm wide angle for travelling (not for still life), and I own, but rarely use a 100mm marco……….need to pull that baby out more often, it was a Christmas present after all. I have Velbon and Monfrotto tripods (Velbon is much lighter and great for travelling).
These are my fur kids on the back patio………see that lovely late afternoon light? I have a whole collection of props and drops and I am always on the hunt at garage sales and thrift stores.
