Equipment I use

Currently I used a Sony A7R camera and a selection of older film lenses that I just use as manual focus lenses.

Previous I had a few Nikon D800’s, I had a few as I kept breaking them 🙁

And as a backup camera Ive used in the past a Nikon D200. When I had my D800 at the moment I don’t have a backup camera that probs speaks more of the reliability of my Sony A7R.

My first camera was a Nikon D5000 camera body with the kit lens 18-55mm and a 55-200mm lens.

The D5000 is a relatively inexpensive camera but very capable even though it falls into the beginners category. It has bracketing, which is a must for creating quick and easy multi exposure shots for HDR photos. Having a full frame camera would be nice but I find them just way too big and heavy to lug around. The D5000 is light and small enough to carry around easily.

For creating and processing HDR images I use Photomatix and then Photoshop. Currently the Photoshop plugins im using are the Topaz Labs bundle (mainly Topaz adjust) and Nik Software Colour Efex Pro. For noise reduction I use Topaz noise.
