Nighttime (iPad) reading for me these days are mostly lifestyle photoblogs and photography gear sites (for now, fashion & trends have taken a backseat, would you believe?) I read and read and then drool over equipment I can only dream about. Ever since I came across Amanda Giligan’s blog , Mocking Bird (too bad though the blog has not been updated since July 2013) which features the What’s In Your Kit? A series of interviews of famous lifestyle photographers who reveal what gear they shoot with for work or play, I’ve been reading it again and again …. I bet if it is a book, pages are torn to bits with holes by now .
I am such a fan of the lifestyle photographers in the list (lately obsessing over Alice Gao and Aran Gayoaga!) . Not to mention their gear — insane! I know I am not in their caliber (yet but watch out!) , nonetheless I’m slowly but surely trying to add (needs and lusts) to what I have , but for now what I have serves me well and good — lean but mean, that’s what matters.
My Lean Gear for work, sometimes play: Canon 5DM2, Canon L24-70mm F2.8, Canon L24-15mm F4.5, Tamron 90mm Macro F2.8, Canon Speedlight 430EXII
