Photography Gear

Equipo de fotografía

Cámaras, lentes, software

El nuevo kit nunca mejoró a un fotógrafo, solo nuestra propia imaginación y creatividad pueden hacer eso.

No me gusta convertir el equipo en una virtud, pero como fotógrafo comercial confío en el mejor equipo que pueda tener en mis manos y, por lo tanto, con el espíritu de compartir las cosas que funcionan para mí, aquí hay una lista continua de las cosas. que uso con más regularidad

Cámaras

Canon 5D Mk III

Canon 5D Mk IV

Canon 5DS

Canon 550D con filtro infrarrojo de 720nm

Insta 360 Una X

Hazte Pro Héroe 6

DJI Pocket 2

Cámaras

So I’m a DSLR guy. I’ve nothing against mirrorless cameras, in fact I’d love to have one. I just can’t justify the expense as the 5DS in particular offers pretty close resolution and given that my audience is primarily on the internet I can’t see the upgrade making any significant difference.

The Canon 550D has the same 18 MP APS-C sensor as the 7D. Although it lacked the dual processor of the 7D it is still a decent camera. In fact when I opted to upgrade to full frame it was the 7D that I sold. I had my 550D converted to infrared a couple of years ago and its given the camera a new lease of life.

360° Cameras were fascinating when they first appeared and I as well as the gimmicks I found ways to use the video capability creatively in ordinary video. You’d never know that we didn’t hire a crane or a helicopter in those sequences!

Action Cameras – the GoPro Hero 6 is practically antique at this stage but I’m getting some use out of it still in the videos I’m making in Andalucia. The DJI Pocket 2 is an astounding camera. Not really an action camera as its quite fragile but in terms of documenting some of my location scouting expeditions its a marvel.

Lenses and Lights

As a commercial photographer I picked my lenses on quality for the job at hand. Now that I’m focusing more on landscape work I’ve no doubt that some will seem superfluous. I’ll probably swap the 17-40 out for a 16-35mm at some point but other than that I’m pretty happy that I’m covered for most eventualities.

Lights are really for studio work and I got great value from my Elinchrom kit. The LumeCube lights are great for lighting video, getting light into places you struggle with.

Filtros

Polarizador circular

Filtros

The only filters I absolutely have to have are the circular polariser, the Stopper series and the ND Filters. Pretty much everything else can be done on Photoshop these days. Of course you have to shoot for the edit and that might mean bracketing to capture the entire dynamic range in a scene. I’ve been a Lee Filters man since day one and I would only change if something a little less fragile and more glove friendly became available!

Tripods, Heads, Gimbals and Drones

I’ve recently acquired a Feisol tripod and absolutely love it. The Giottos MTL was a great studio tripod that served me well for ten years. The Vitruvium was the innovative tripod in its day and both of these have lasted me ten years. The Bushman I bought for 360 shoots and the Gorillapods for just in case scenarios. I’ve actually redeployed the Gorillapods now for video. They suit the DJI Pocket perfectly, really opening up the range of viewpoints quite dramatically.

The Drone is a glorified gimbal at the end of the day. The Phantom 4 has the best camera outside of the Mavic Pro 3 and I haven’t seen the need to upgrade, though the size factor is a slight problem.

You need decent heads for stability. In the studio, my three-way Giottos Head was perfectly acceptable, but outside is a whole different ballgame. I bought Acratech heads recently for my landscape and panoramic photography and although they were expensive, it’s money well spent. And half the time fiddling about. I also bought some Kirk Photographic base plates and an L Bracket that fits the cameras like a glove. By far the best design I’ve seen.

Software

Adobe Lightroom

Adobe Photoshop

DXO Laboratorio fotográfico 5

Punto de vista DXO 3

Paquete de películas DXO 6

Software

This section should also include the Photographer’s Epherimis and Photo Pills. two apps that are indispensable for landscape photography. Adobe still lead the way in post production and with techniques like luminosity blending and masking they are consolidating their position as essential creative tools.

That being said, I’m a big fan of DxO Pure RAW. It’s the best pre processing software I’ve found in terms of camera/lens corrections and noise removal. Viewpoint is better than anything in the Adobe stable and the Nik Collection also has much to offer – I haven’t found anything as good as Silver Efex Pro. It would be interesting to do a side by side edit DxO vs. Adobe. Look out for that in the future!
