In my bag

I am often asked about my camera and lenses, so thought I should put a short piece about it.

The one thing I would like to stress at the very beginning is that the camera and equipment are not what makes a great image. Don’t think you have to have the latest and greatest kit to produce beautiful photographs. It’s all about the light and pre-visualisation! With that said, having the right tools for the job will make your life much easier and will have an influence on the final quality.

I am a Nikon girl and I do love my equipment!

I have 2 full frame camera bodies - Nikon D800's. I wear a Reporter harness that has a double locking system for the camera. If one fails, there is always a back up! That’s what I like and need!  And that carries through to the rest of my equipment.  I can't just stop shooting as I have had an equipment failure - that's just not acceptable in my book!

I shoot mainly with prime lenses. I love the clarity and sharpness they give me. Not forgetting about the creamy bokeh. They are accurate, fast and great in low light. The quality of the image is just outstanding and pin sharp!  My list of primes are as follows:

  • Nikon 35mm f/1.4G
  • Nikon 50mm f/1.4G
  • Nikon 85mm f/1.4G
  • Nikon 105mm f/2.8 macro

When it comes to zoom I own 2 lenses:

  • Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8G
  • Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G

I like flashing…. with the flash that is:) Low light situation really inspire me to come up with something different and unique. There is no need to be scared of darkness. I embrace it with a Nikon SB-700 and a bunch of Godox V850's. To trigger those bad boys I use Godox FT-16 transmitter and receivers. Info for the nerds- Godox flashes have lithium ion battery, once charged, they last forever.
