Equipment


I started out using manual and semi-automatic Minolta cameras, and then moved on to Nikon digital SLR cameras later. At the time of rebuiling this website, I have just ordered a full-frame mirrorless camera from Nikon and I'm looking forward to trying out the new features that the new system offers! Digital photography brought with it a huge number of new possibilities and allowed me to learn far more quickly than I could have done with film, as well as allowing my to dabble in videography, but I still appreciate the value of having learned with a manual film camera!


The list below shows some of the equipment I currently use. Amazon links are provided for you to find more information or even buy something yourself - these are Amazon Affiliate Links and if you use them to make a purchase, you don't pay anything extra, but I get a tiny percentage from Amazon.
