35mm FIlm and DLSR - Nikon plus one old Minolta set up for a 600mm f8 mirror telephoto
Medium Format - Mamiya 645 and 645 Pro TL
Large Format - Bender 4x5 with a Schneider Kreutznach lens mated to a Copal No. 1 Shutter.

I still have and use a Beseler 3 Enlarger.

On my wish list? Either an Epson 700i or a Microtek scanner. Anyone have opinions on scanners? I am looking for one to scan negatives. I looked at the Nikons, but from what I can tell, the Epsons or Microteks are better values.

35mm lenses - Nikon 50mm, 85mm, 12-24mm, 24-120mm VR, 200mm micro, 18-200mm VR, 17-35mm, 70-300mm, 70-200mm VR

MF - Mamiya 645 AFD, Mamiya 645AFD II, Hasselblad 501CM, Hasselblad 503CW, Hasselblad H2, Hasselblad H1D

Just one camera and it's a Panasonic. How's that for low class?

But I like it and I want to learn how to use one thing well. Also I'm into lightweight, compact, easy to transport, photography gear ... which may be three oxymorons in one sentence.

I bought the Panasonic FZ-30 for outdoor wildlife photography. It has a 35 to 420 mm equivalent zoom lens (Leica) that is almost silent plus manual (or auto) zoom and focus rings that also make it silent. This camera did about half the images on my G1 portfolio, including the landscape with the mountains, Playmate Holley, and a close up of a flower. The last was just to see if the camera could do it.

The other images were taken with either a Cannon S-1 (I sold it to a friend) or a Pentax point and shoot pocket camera (that I had in my pocket when I saw the Beijing train station at night and could take a quick snap). I've got an old Cannon film SLR gathering dust.

I had a glamour shoot on Friday and thought I might need lighting so on Thursday night I went out into my garage and built a light stand out of a 2x2 and some 1x4 scrap wood, some recycled electrical fittings and a bathroom mirror light fixture previously bought at a clearance price (a row of three bulb sockets in a box with a mirrored surface). Wound up not using it because we only did pool shots and no sauna shots, but I think it might work. Total cost: maybe $40 including some ordinary frosted vanity mirror bulbs. Kind of fun to build it.

This is probably like going on a safari with just a .22 caliber rifle.

"Whereever I stand is my studio" ... so my studio is my living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom, garage, neighbor's pool, neighbor's sailboat or nearby lakes..

Equipment:
  • Nikon D100
  • Lenses: Nikkor 24-120 f3.5-5.6, Nikkor 70-200 f2.8 VR, Nikkor 50mm f1.8
  • 2 Alien Bee 400s
  • 25 year old Norman P2000D Powerpack with 4 heads (400ws, 800ws & 1200ws)
  • a cheap eBay wireless flash trigger
  • 36x48 softbox w/grid, two 30" Broncolor softboxes, 24" softbox, 16" home made beauty dish, 48" gold reflector, 36" silver reflector, three 48"x72" diffusion panels
  • 24" fan with home made variable speed controller
Since I don't have a separate "studio" I spend about half my time shooting around the house and outside, the other half shooting in front of seamless or other backgrounds. Here's a typical seamless setup in my living room ... er, uh ... home studio..

But if you hit the animal right between the eyes or in the eyes, even a BB gun should work.

Okay, here's mine...

Contax 645; 80mm lens and 120mm macro lens
Nikon F4s, N75, and D100; 28-80mm kit lens x 2 (that came with N75 - two bodies), older-than-me 50mm f2.0 lens (still takes a great picture), 70-300mm f4.0-5.6 x 2 (one each of the G-type and D-type)
Seagull TLR
Holga

Dyna-Lite 500ws power pack w/2040 head x 2
Alien Bees B1600 x 2
I only have one softbox, a Westcott Apollo Mono
several umbrellas of various sizes (1 really big one, 4 smaller ones)
lightstands (and tripod) are mostly Bogen

Apple Macintosh G4 (the first generation of G4s)
G4 PowerBook
Still using PS CS (as opposed to CS2) at the moment

And let's not forget the darkroom equipment!!

Most of what I use in the darkroom ends up being either Jobo and Doran (various processing equipment), Omega (enlarger), or Beseler (enlarger).
