What does Graham carry With him?
Temba bag It’s an over the shoulder bag. It is quick to access and click shut and move with. But I try and trolley it wherever possible, as that is better for my back. I shoot quickly and with a variety of gear, so my setup reflects this. two camera bodies I always shoot with two camera bodies. One for each shoulder. One with a wide lens, the other with a long lens. They are always the same type of camera. That way you can shoot very quickly and fluidly and not have a millisecond of delay in figuring out the camera differences under fire.
My cameras always have full batteries and are loaded and set on TV and the lenses are always set to autofocus. That way as soon as I pull the camera up to my eye, I am shooting. Canon eos 5d mark ii These are great cameras, they offer good quality images and are great value. They have a great live capture too! 70-200mm F/2.8 This lens is very sharp and quick. It’s a really great lens probably the best workhorse in my kit. 16-35mm F/2.8 This lens is a great one for weddings and any life situation. My two most used lenses are my widest (this one) and the 70-200mm. 85mm F/1.2 This is an absolutely beautiful prime lens.
It has great drop off and is sharp and quick to focus. It’s a great fashion lens. It has a great feel. The next one I will buy is a 50mm f/1.2. 24-70mm F/2.8 Just an all round versatile, really useable lens. 24mm F/2.8 This is a really sharp lens. It is a great photojournalist lens. It’s the kind of lens that you can take with you and just wander the streets with. 100mm macro F/2.8 I will upgrade this one very shortly. The new one focuses super fast and is very sharp. Still, this is a great portrait and close-up lens. 580 eXii Flashes X 2 With a flash booster each. A simple easy lighting system and the boosters give it better rapid fire.
