As usual – I’ve asked Thomas to share a photography tip with us as well as a description of his camera kit. I hope you enjoy reading what Thomas has to say!
My camera kit looks like this: Canon EOS 5D, Canon EOS-10D (obviously the 10D gets a lot less action than the 5D these days), Canon EF 135mm f/2L, Canon EF 50mm f/1.2 L, Canon L 24 f/1.2, Get the latest price on the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro and then some old Canon zooms that I don’t really use any more. 1. 8 gig Seagate Microdrive. 1 8 gig Sandisk flash memory card, 1 4 gig generic flash memory card. Canon cable release, Manfrotto tripod and a MacBook Pro laptop.
Probably to change your perspective. Don’t be afraid to crawl down and shoot from the ground or to look around as to how you can get up higher for a shot (chair, ladder, ledge, window, etc.). If you don’t want to get down on the ground on your belly at least set your camera on the ground/bar/table/ etc from time to time and shoot from there. Oftentimes the lower plane adds a great deal to the shot.
The above image illustrates what you see sometimes when getting low. It’s a self portrait where I set the camera on the ground and used the timer which captures a bulk of a sort of dreamy reflective floor.
