For all the people, curious to find out what gear I use to capture the images on this website, here is the list of my current set of photographic equipment . I am a Canon user for the past 6 years.
My most trusted landscape lens. Beautiful colors, incredible range. Always in my travel kit. The other end (35mm) great for some scenic portraits too. Only itch with this piece is that it does not have IS so sometimes reliant on a tripod in low light conditions.
The world of little things is fascinating too. I have owned in the past the non-IS non-L version of the same lens and found it to be a reliable choice when it comes to Macro photography. However, the L series, IS version is easily the best. Now I don't need to take the extra support of tripods with macro shots and in decent light capture the tiny world in all its glory. This lens doubles as an excellent portrait lens too, for some bokehlicious frames.
My favorite lens ever. This lens always finds its way into my travel kit. Be it Macro, Landscape, Wildlife or Portraits, this is as versatile a lens can get. At 2.8 and 200mm, this lens produces some amazing bokeh not to mention the sharpness with which it carves the subjects out in a frame. Have shot some incredible wildlife images with a combination of this lens and 2x iii teleconverters when I did not have the super tele. Highly recommend this for anyone using a DSLR with a good budget.
I love handholding and this is the lightest super telephoto over 400mm that allows me to do just that. Portable enough to fit into a medium to large sized backpack, this lens is my go to lens for bird photography. Until I purchased this lens, I did not know wildlife images could be this beautiful and after purchase, I just cannot go on a photo trip without it. Works like a charm with the 1.4 TC iii for a bit more focal length. The alternative 400 f2.8 and 600 f4 are both great lenses however just too heavy for handhold-ability so this one wins my vote.
This little guy mostly sits connected to my 500 f4 lens and is amazing add-on to provide that extra focal length and close up shots. Had decent luck shooting flights also with this guy plugged on. Definitely the first Teleconverter to be purchased if anyone plans to get one.
This is my very first teleconverter purchase and have been my go-to trusted partner with the 70-200 f2.8 for almost 2 years for bird photography. I have shot some incredible pictures with the help of this guy without losing too much quality. Would recommend with any f2.8 compatible lens. Producing almost double the focal length of the lens, this is an amazing piece of invention.
Almost 4 years with this body and no complaints. Just the best choice as an all around body. Amazing for some HD video clips as well. Good standing in low light conditions as well. In my opinion, one of the best cameras to-date Canon has produced and in an affordable range for an advanced amateur photographer/professional. Highly recommend if a blazing burst mode is not your primary requirement.
Received in June 2016 and just love it.
Many a times, I have missed a decisive moment in the wild which I saw with my eyes but failed to freeze. But with this big boy and the 15fps, that shouldn't be an issue anymore. Flagship body and the most expensive in Canon line up, so wouldn't recommend to anyone unless they know what they need out of this fellow.
