Equipment

In terms of equipment, I use Canon for both cameras and lenses. I have started DSLR photography quite some years ago with a Canon EOS 1000D. This beginner camera model has allowed me to learn a basic understanding of photography. In 2014, I felt ready for a more advanced camera model and went for the Canon EOS 7D. From my point of view, this camera is absolutely fantastic. The 7D excels in focus speed, burst rate, high resolution, durability and many other factors.

Camera bodies are nothing without appropriate lenses. For the 7D with its resolution of almost 20 million pixels, it is crucial to use lenses that can transform a high resolution onto the sensor. My choice for lenses fell on the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f 2.8, the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f 3,5-4,5 as well as the Canon EF-S 10-18 f 4,5-5,6 IS STM lens.

Many types of photography such as HDR or time-lapse photography can only be performed by using another piece of equipment – a tripod. Such a static camera mount is an absolute must have for architecture and interior design photography. Having started with an aluminum tripod from Calumet Photographic, I currently use the Sirui  N-1204X carbon fibre tripod for weight reasons along with the Sirui K-10X tripod head.

As a protection of the front glass elements of the lenses, I decided to apply a neutral glass filter by B+W. I have attached a B+W 67mm XS-PRO digital polarizer to the Canon 10-18mm wide angle lens. For artificial lighting I use a Yongnuo speedlight along with Yongnuo remote flash triggers. Last but not least, a piece of equipment I would never want to miss is my Tamrac Evolution 8 camera bag that fits all of the above mentioned camera gear into it.
