My first camera was an old Canon SLR that shot 35 mm film. Well, it was actually my dad’s old Canon that he let me use when I took a black and white photography class in high school. I fell in love with photography during that semester, and before I knew it I was on my first trip to Yosemite trying to emulate Ansel Adams. In college I began shooting color film, and by the time I graduated the quality of digital cameras was catching up to that of film, so I bought my first DSLR, the Canon 20D.
Since then, camera technology has come a long way, and it continues to develop faster than I can save up to buy the next best thing. My travel and landscape photography gear isn’t the most expensive, or the newest, but it is what works for me and my budget. I invested in good lenses, and a stable tripod, and combining those things with my artistry has yielded me some photos that I am proud of. For those who are curious, here is what is currently in my camera bag when I am on the road, or shooting landscape photography.
