Tell us what your one must-have piece of gear is and why:
My “nifty fifty” is my one must-have piece of gear – I feel totally naked without it! My 50 mm f/1.4 Canon lens is super sharp, fast, and is great in low lighting situations. This lens is a must-have in my opinion for those that shoot weddings and need a super reliable lens that creates beautiful images.
Tell us what your one must-have piece of software is and why:
Everyone will tell you Lightroom, so I’m going to say Photo Mechanic. This software has allowed me to cut down culling time by more than half and makes my life much easier when culling a wedding. For those photographers that haven’t tried it, do yourself a favour and get on it! You won’t regret it.
What’s your advice for someone just starting out?
I wish I would have known that getting into the groove of figuring out your shooting and editing style actually takes years, and is not something that you will know and understand right off the bat. I constantly found myself stressing out about not knowing what my “style” was and what I didn’t realize is that you eventually grow into it without even knowing it.
