Following on from yesterdays post I said I’d give you an idea of the kit that I’ve put together for my Landscape Project.
Being a Portrait Photographer this new project has meant I’ve invested in kit I didn’t have but
thankfully hopefully I’ve kept that to a minimum, sticking to only getting kit that I need as opposed to what I want.
I’ve put together a Kit / Gear List page that you can check out by clicking on the link in the top of this web site but to cover what I’ve labelled above…
- Sony A7 RII with 24-70mm f/4.0
- Mavic Pro Drone
- Mavic Pro Drone Controller
- Canon 200D (for filming Behind the Scenes)
- First Aid Kit
- Lee Big and Little Stoppers (10 and 6 Stop ND Filters)
- Lee Filters 100mm System Foundation Kit
- LowePro Filter Pouch contaning Lee Filters Soft and Hard ND Graduated Filters, Lee Polarising Filter…
- Lumix DMC-LX15 (for additional filming)
- LowePro Zip Bag containining odds n’ sods (Batteries, Head Torch etc…)
- Sony 16-35mm f/4.0
- Sony 70-200mm f/4.0
- Rocket Blower (Camera Cleaning)
- GoPro Hero 5, Clamp, Spare Camera Batteries …
- Lowepro Pro Runner 450 AW Photo Backpack
To be honest I was thinking that maybe I was taking too much kit with me but soon realised that the environment can change so quickly, with Landscape Photography you absolutely have to be prepared to meet that change head on and adapt.
It was also VERY tempting to go for the faster G Master range of Sony lenses for their superior quality but took advice on this and thankfully saved myself a shed full of cash. Shooting the landscapes I’ll likely never go wider than f/8.0 so going for the lenses I did meant great quality but also they are a heck of a lot lighter.
