My favorite lenses and when I use them! This is so fun! We could spend so much time going back and forth on which camera brand is better Canon, Sony, Nikon and so on. I personally shoot Nikon, and yes there are days I wonder if I would be better shooting Canon. Then I rock out a shoot and I feel affirmation I am using the right brand, but truth be told we are all artists and tools can change. How we interpret it is solely up to us. So with that said, I am going to share with you my favorite lenses and what I use to create imagery.
First and foremost my strategy and look of the session is the key to how I first approach any session when photographing a subject. You have to calculate the brand style. If you are photographing a person/s, product
location matters on how much distance I can put between myself and my client. No matter if I am outside or inside, the lenses I photograph with are similar as far as purpose and results.
YES THESE ARE ALL IN MY ARSON. I even have multiple of some of these as my backup camera, and yes I have backup cameras for my OH SHIT DAYS!
I Shoot With Nikon D850 & if you use the Mirrorless The Nikon Z7 you can purchase the mount to be able to continue to use the lenses you have already invested in. Remember, if you shoot with Canon or Sony the lenses represent the same and produce similar outcomes. If you are just starting out, I love the previous models and budget friendly Nikon D610 and the NikonD750. It’s important to remember that you are an artist and you don’t have to have the Ferrari to be amazing. It’s all about how you use the tool that you have.
When I am photographing clients I keep my lenses and gear in the Camera Bag I designed The Influencer, ready for on the go and easy lens transition. I love this bag because it’s sleek and handcrafted of Italian leather. When I am photographing a large shoot I bring my other lenses and camera and store them in this rollable suitcase that protects them and is easy to travel.
