From time to time I am asked what gear I use, what lenses I favour and what is typically in my ‘wedding bag.’ I thought I’d put this post together for anyone else who might be interested…
I am a Canon girl. The reason being.. it just so happened that my first DSLR was Canon and one tends to stick to a brand once they’ve purchased that first body and lens!
So if you are starting out and want to know ‘which is the better brand’ I can quite honestly say that both are great and you really just need to decide what works best for you. Or flip a coin.
Here’s a break down of my kit, all of which I take on weddings except for items marked with an asterix (*)
Garyfong diffuser (I cant remember when last I used this but I take it with every time!)
*2 X Phottix 70x70cm pop-up umbrella soft boxes (I use these for products/food etc)
2 X Tristar light stands
Cactus triggers (I use these less and less as I find the master-slave settings for speedlights works well for me)
Lowepro Pro Runner 450 AW Backpack (Fits SO much in it and is really nice and deep!)
Accessories & extra’s
In the studio
Adobe Indesign (for album layout)
numerous Seagate external hard drives
*I’ll be writing a FAQ for the blog soon so if you have any questions (shooting/business/gear/weddings etc) feel free to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will try and answer as many as I can as best as I can.
