Equipment

I take almost all of my photos using a Canon D60 DSLR. On occasion I will use my iPhone 6, but very very seldom.

I have really enjoyed this camera so far. One day I plan on upgrading to either a Canon 7D or 5D but that is not in the immediate future.

I use three main lenses, although I sometimes carry a fourth. The main one I use is a Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens.

Perhaps my favorite lens is my fish-eye. Eventually I want to invest in a bit better fish-eye but I love the Rokinon 8mm f/3.5.

Typically I will also carry a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lens as well. It is my best low light lens, but it is a fixed focal length lens.

The last lens I have is one that I do not carry often, unless I am shooting a sporting event or I need to add some length to my shots. It is a Canon 55-250mm f/4.5-5.6 lens.

I use a Manfrotto MK290XTA-3WUS tripod with a 3-way head kit. I like it, but it is a bit heavy so if I am hiking or walking a lot during the day it stays home. Luckily a lot of what I have done lately has been in my car which means I can carry it with me in my trunk. Eventually I’d like to upgrade to a lighter model, but again that is a ways away from happening.

For a camera bag, I use a Kata Bumblebee DL-210 backpack. I love this bag. I have had it for several years and it has held up nicely. It has enough room for what I carry, plus space for a laptop and a top compartment where I can carry just about anything else I need. I am a huge fan of Kata bags.
