THE EQUIPMENT


"It is a poor carpenter who blames his tools."

My first camera was Nikkormat.  My father used Nikon so I was able to "borrow" his lenses and have used Nikon ever since.  However,  it makes little difference what brand of camera you use.

I am barely able to take advantage of the capabilities that reside in my camera bag.  I do purchase equipment that is above my abilities.  This gives me the opportunities to grow into my gear.

The most important piece I own is a tripod.  When I don't use it, it shows.  I recently purchased a larger more cumbersome one.  This forces me to slow way down and examine closely what I am shooting.  If you are just starting out, buy the biggest tripod and the biggest head you can possibly afford.  The more rock solid and the harder it is to setup, the better your photos will be.  Also get one that reaches eye level.  Your back will thank you.
