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.

After several years of carrying a heavy full frame camera, professional level lenses and, because I create content on Youtube, a load of video gear - an old injury made me reconsider my approach and I switched things around using the camera system I bought to shoot video as my main stills camera.

If the best camera is the one you have with you then maybe the best camera to have with you is the one that lets you get to the right place at the right time in order to capture the scene, the light, the mood and the story

For the time being this is what I am going to be using, at least until I feel I have hit the limits of what this set up can do and then we'll have to see.

For those that are interested here are the details of the gear I am using along with (for some of it)  individual reviews to read and even links to my review videos
