Peek inside my camera bag...

One of the questions I'm asked most frequently is what camera and lenses I use. Today, I'm going to allow you to glance into my camera bag and see what tools I use to create my images.

Nikon D300
My Camera:
Nikon D300

I chose this camera because of one function – the ability to make 10 multiple exposures.

Nikkor Nikon AF–S 70–300mm f/4–5.6 D ED

I really love this lens. With the minimum aperture f/45 I can take images in the middle of the day without needing an ND filter.

I use this lens for all my water, beach and people shots.

They call this lens Bokeh Monster for a reason.
I'm in love.

500mm Mirror Lens f/8

A mirror lens offers a very cool effect whereby Bokeh is rendered as a doughnut shape. This gives my images a very distinctive look.
