Most photographers are a little obsessed with their gear and for many the gear is a huge part of the draw of photography. I can’t begin to explain why but I will be the first to admit, I have a bit of an obsession with gear and the latest and greatest stuff. I can’t usually justify the purchase of all the brand new gear, but I do have a pretty good grasp of the industry and what is out there. That being said, I don’t want this blog to become a site heavily dedicated to reviewing new pieces of equipment every time something is released. There are numerous sites out there doing fantastic jobs at that and I don’t want to just fall into that crowd.
I have struggled with whether I should include a gear section or not and finally decided that I would simply post about the equipment that I use on a regular basis. I don’t plan to post in depth technical reviews of each piece but rather to explain exactly what I use and more importantly, why I use it. Some pages will include photos and some will include some short videos depending on the piece of equipment.
I will be adding to this article series on a regular basis over the next few months until I have covered everything. If there is a particular piece of equipment you’d like to know more about please post a comment or question and I’ll do my best to provide the information. I have now added the introduction to the series, the introduction to camera bodies, and my thoughts about the Nikon D3. Check them out in the menu bar just below the images at the top of the page. Enjoy!
