My Photography Equipment

In the event that you were actually wondering what photography equipment and software I use, wonder no more my friends!

Here’s the run down:

Cameras: Canon 60D, iPhone 6 (iPhone 4S used for older posts)

Canon EOS 60D

Lenses: Sigma 30mm f/1.4, Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5, and Canon 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6

Software: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5, Adobe Photoshop CS6, and Apple Final Cut Pro X


Most of my photography and videography is done using my Canon 60D. I have a tendency to gravitate towards the Sigma 30mm lens as one can achieve some fun depth of field effects with that 1.4 f-stop in both photography and videography (as seen in the focus pulling apparent in some of my videos)!

As far as the photography software is concerned, I love, LOVE, LOOOVE Lightroom! It’s easy to use, great for organizing and there are a bunch of beautiful (FREE—I love FREE!!) presets out there! I even tried Aperture once, out of curiosity, and immediately returned to Lightroom. Photoshop CS6 is also wonderful for fine-tuning your images, but it takes a lot more know-how to operate that piece of software. Of course, if you’re up to it, there are a ton of YouTube tutorials and books out there on Photoshop (and Lightroom, too)!

I still have a lot to learn about Final Cut Pro X. Long ago and far away in the land of college, I took a video editing class where we used Final Cut Express (no ‘Pro’ and no ‘X’ as this was, long ago and far away). Final Cut has come a loooong way since then! A lot has changed, but I continue to learn something new each and every time I create a video. YouTube is, of course, extremely helpful! I’ve also discovered another great educational website, It’s free to sign up and some of the courses they offer are also free! I’ve found a couple courses on Final Cut Pro X and they were very helpful in getting me started!

As for my computer, I’m proud to say that it’s a Mac, it’s amazingly fast and I built it myself! Read more about my Hackintosh build here.

Well that about wraps it up! Comment with any questions, as I’d be more than happy to help!
