MY LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY AND YOUTUBE VIDEO GEAR

 

Landscape photography is not about the camera used to create the image. The best images are about the scene, the light, the mood and the story. They are also, very much, about being in the right place at the right time. So it’s important that whatever gear you use allows you to do that.

I like to keep the weight of my gear to a minimum. So a  light weight camera system is called for.  I have proven that, despite being a so called “entry level” system, the quality of images that it can produce are more than good enough for any normal use, including quite large prints. Plus, the light weight means I can carry a lot of different lens options for increased creativity. Although I have considered 'upgrading' this set-up I honestly can't see a good reason to do so at the moment

MY other camera setup

I used to use a "professional" DSLR and lenses but stopped because the weight of this gear was aggravating a bad back and stopping me getting to where I needed to be. I still use the camera and one of the lenses occasionally for wildlife and some 'specialised' shoots 

Nikon D810

Tamron 150-600 lens
