Photography Equipment I use for a photoshoot

In fact, the choice of photography equipment when I visit a client is important to me.

As a result, portability’s a requirement of the Photography Equipment. Accordingly packed in manageable loads and easy to put together for setup also helps.

Photography Equipment

With this in mind here are the important items

Camera Canon 5dmk2

In this case, I have had this camera for a number of years. In addition, it produces high-quality full-frame images and has proved very reliable. Accordingly, I always mount the camera on a tripod.

Lenses

In like manner, the choice of lens is very important. As a result, I use Canon prime lenses 24mm – 70mm and 70mm – 200mm both f2.8.

Lighting

Equally important is the choice of lighting. Moreover, each shoot is unique and may require a different way to light the subject. Therefore, in most cases, I choose flashlights and pocket wizards to wirelessly fire them.

Photography Equipment Backgrounds

In this case, there may be a choice of options. For indoors I use either a portable collapsible backdrop (with stand) or a suitable wall. Consequently, if I am shooting outside I choose an area that has a bit of shade.

Advantages

As a result of the above equipment, transportation is easy. Thus the setup time is minimal. Consequently, this gives the client, minimal downtime for themselves and their staff.

Post Processing

In like manner, at times it is necessary to take along a laptop to post-process the images. In fact, the screen at the back of the camera is small and only gives a representation of the image taken. Therefore to see the true image you require a laptop to see this on.

Therefore, as you can see the equipment required is not vast. Equally, it does allow for easy transportation and setup.
