For those who have wondered, I put together a page of all the photography equipment and gear I use. This list is always kept up to date, and additionally, all the products link to a more detailed page where you can view more info on any product of your choice.
Recommended Gear Quick Links
B&H Photo was kind enough to set up some personal landing pages for me. These pages give you quick access to all of my recommended photography equipment. I hand-selected all the cameras, lenses, filters etc (most of which I own) based on personal experience and research. Buying anything through these links help support this website and keep it going.
If you have a question about a specific product, whether it’s about how something works or what my thoughts are on it, etc., please feel free to contact me and I’ll get back to you with an answer.
This is Nikon’s second best cropped-sensor DSLR and features a robust magnesium alloy body, a fast 8fps, and weather sealing.
This little guy works wonders when you have to clean off your cameras image sensor. Lets face it, we all hate those dust specks that show up where you don’t want ‘em!
These rechargeable batteries have an amazing technology that allows them to stay charged for years. I think I read that after a year of storage, they still hold an 85% charge.
The perfect telephoto zoom for a person on a budget. It’s sharp across all apertures, and the VR makes it easy to handle. This lens is useful for outdoor sports.
Reverse GNDs are extremely handy if you want to capture sunsets with the sun still above the horizon line, as that’s what these were made fore.
Called “The Big Stopper” this filter is meant to block almost all light entering your lens. I use it during the day with shutter speeds over 10 seconds to blur moving clouds, giving the landscape a surreal look.
Flashes and Studio Strobes
I use this old-but-good flash off-camera in full manual mode to provide portable, go-anywhere light. It’s cheap yet durable and just as powerful as higher priced units, making it the perfect addition to my lighting kit.
When paired with a UDMA-compliant DSLR camera, this card guarantees speedy, high-quality photo and video capture. Enjoy the security of a lifetime warranty.
This uses magnesium alloy components for better performance and lighter weight. The B0 has a dual action design featuring separate drag adjustment and lock knobs. It can handle weights up to 17.63 lbs.
The CST Trigger Transmitter mounts on your camera’s hot shoe to provide wireless firing. When your camera shutter is pressed, the CST will simultaneously send the firing signal to all of the flash units in your setup fitted with CyberSync™ receivers.
Softboxes and Modifiers
This Westcott 43″ White Satin Umbrella has a removable black backing, so that it may be used as a “shoot-through”, makeshift softbox. It has a collapsible shaft, which makes it very compact for packing away in your location case.
Light Stands and Support
Lowel Uni-TO Light Stand – 8′ (x2)
Constructed with thick-wall, anodized aluminum alloy tubing to deliver an exceptionally high strength-to-weight ratio. All have a standard 5/8″ top stud with safety undercut, adjustable base spread and collar-clamping for each segment.
A versatile aluminum bracket that will fit on almost any light stand. It includes two removable, reversible studs with 1/4″-20 threads, to adapt to light stands with top studs smaller than the standard 5/8″.
It has dual door side panels on both sides of the waistpack; one with accessory compartments, the other with a QuickAccess hatch directly to the inside of the case.
Photoshop uses a powerful layer-based approach for image editing. Using layers allows you to make adjustments to images without modifying aspects of an original.
In searching other IPS monitors I found this one to be the only one in a price range I could really afford. I’d like to see it up against the $600+ Apple Cinema Display, but I figure that at almost 1/3 the price, I’ll stay here.
