Do You Use Professional Equipment ?
One of the most popular questions photographers are asked is what gear is in their camera bag. I have invested in professional gear and I'm often told I have a nice camera or that my camera takes great photos. Since I am self-taught, I am honored by the compliment, but I believe that a camera is just like a paintbrush. It's the artist that creates, not the brush. So judge not the tools, instead enjoy the creation. Below details my tools of creation. Everything is insured with serial numbers logged in a recovery service database.
