Some of my favourite photography quotes...

The camera is a musical instrument - Andre Kertesz

...the photographer is, primarily, a subject selector.  Much as it may offend the artistically inclined, the history of photography is primarily the history of subject matter.  So a photographers first decision is what to photograph - David Hurn

There is only you and your camera.  The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are - Ernst Haas

There are no rules for good photographs, just good photographs - Ansel Adams

If you're out there shooting, things will happen for you.  If you're not out there, you'll only hear about it - Jay Maisal

The camera is an instrument which teaches people how to see without a camera - Dorothea Lange

A picture is an expression of an impression.  If the beautiful were not within us, how would we ever recognize it? - Ernst Haas

For something to be beautiful, it doesn't have to be pretty - Rei Kawakubo

I absolutely never crop, except if I need to - Frank DiPerna

My style? Eclectic (read none). How much do I shoot? Very variable. My subject? Whatever inerests me. Who am I trying to please? Me (most of the time-there are exceptions). - Rnewman


My shooting is done with two 'kits' depending on how much equipment to bring...


Kit #1

Panasonic GX1 with a Panasonic GF1 as secondary body

Lenses are Sigma 19/2.8 (on GF1) - Panasonic 20/1.7 - Olympus 45/1.8 - Panasonic 45-150



Canon 50D

Lenses are Sigma 24/2.8 - Sigma 30/1.4 - Canon 40/2.8 Pancake - Canon 50/1.4 - Tokina 12~24/4.0 zoom - Canon 17~55 2.8 IS zoom - Canon 55~250 IS zoom

Canon 430EX flash

Nikon SB-80DX flash.   You can use a Nikon flash on a Canon, I've had success in both manual and 'A' modes on the flash.  You didn't hear that from me if you try it and they fry each other though ;)  Works brilliantly in optical slave mode.


Other odds 'n ends...

LowePro Slingshot 200AW bag

Tamrac Rally Messenger 4 bag

MEC shoulder bag (for m43)
