My 3 October Favorites + Tip of the Month
Pick gear that fits your shooting style. Yes, it should be able to help you achieve the style you want as far as your images look, but it should also compliment the way you approach photographing your subjects. For example, I love to be within arms reach of my couples using wider lenses so we can be physically close and I don’t have to stand far away yelling to them because of a long lens. So for me, I LOVE wise lenses like 24mm and 35mm and it’s hard for me to wrap my own shooting style around lenses that are longer than 50mm.
You need to choose pieces that make shooting easy for you, so you can get into a flow and feel that the gear is an extension of yourself. That connection comes with time and getting in tune with what makes things come easy. You shouldn’t have to think about your gear and settings so much that it takes you away from being present with your clients and creativity.
