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 use two different camera systems depending on the type of trip out I am doing. If I am doing longer hikes, exploring, tackling difficult or challenging terrain, then keeping the weight of my gear to a minimum is very important to me.  On those occasions I take my light weight camera system. I have proven over more than 18 months shooting with this 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

If I am just doing a short walk, photographing near to home, or to the car, or in any situation where the weight of the gear is not too important, then I use my bigger, and much heavier, full frame system. This is actually quite  a bit older and lacks some of the newer functions of the lightweight system but is still a joy to use and produces beautiful quality images
