So I’m really enjoying doing an faq section here. Keep your questions coming! To see older posts, just go the top for “categories” and find faq for photographers.
In this post I have questions that I’ve been asked more than a few times!
Q: How did you get into photography? Have you always done this?
A: That’s a great question! Everyone has their “story” on how they got into a business. Believe it or not, I
“was” doing hair for weddings on location and then both businesses at the same time for a while. That was nuts! If you want to hear how I finally took the plunge, you can read my story HERE.
Q: What type of equipment do you use?
A: I use all canon cameras and lenses.
Here is my list!
5d Mark2 camera bodies (I have 2)
580 exII flashes (I have 2)
50mm f/1.2L: have 2 of these, just in case! (My absolute favorite! I use this for detail shots, portraits)
24mm f/1.4L: I love this lens too. It is great for telling a story, getting group shots, receptions. Be aware that if you have a full frame camera, a wide angle can look a little distorted around the edges. Don’t shoot photos of people too close to the sides. Same with buildings…..they can look like they are leaning or falling!
70-200 f 2.8L: I use this mainly for ceremony shots. It’s super heavy! I know some photographers that use it all the time, even for portraits. It’s just too big and cumbersome for me personally, to carry during portraits or couple shoots. I do love it though for ceremonies, and it’s great inside a church when you are sometimes stuck in the back!
Tripod: I rarely use this. It’s great for inside a church that has low light…..Mine is a manfrotto.
