This is the 4th in a continuing series on a Nature Photography class I am taking. For week 4 we talked about equipment and what a photographer should have in their kit. Our instructor showed us much of his equipment and talked about some good options depending on what type of photography you take.
My primary camera is a Sony DSLR A57. The list below is what I have in my kit. The starred items are ones that I'm hoping to get in the future.
- Lens coverage from 18mm to 300 mm. I have two zooms to cover this area. One is a 18-70 and the second is a 75-300 zoom lens.
- * I have just ordered a 50mm 1.8 lens
- * An off camera flash is on my wish list.
- Extension tubes
- Polarizing Filter
- *Cokin gradient Neutral Denisity filter is on my wish list.
- Pop out Reflector set
- Cable Release
