I know it is a bit early to be thinking about a new wish list of camera gear but I can’t help it. I’ve been super excited about getting back into photography.
I had a few things still from when I sold my body that helped me out. Here’s my current equipment list:
- Canon T3i Thanks hun!
- Canon 18-55 IS Kit Lens
- Tamron 17-50 f2.8 non-VC Lens
- Sigma 30mm f1.4 Lens
- Canon 55-250 IS Lens
- Canon 75-300 USM Lens
- Canon 430 EX II Flash
- 32GB Class 10 SD Card
- BlackRapid Camera Strap
- Cheap But Light Tripod
- Extra LP-E8 Battery
- Small Camera Bag
What kind of photography do I want to do? One of the big reasons I got out of photography before was because I was pushing myself to learn new things, and those new things weren’t fun. I knew I didn’t want to turn photography into a paying job, but I since I’ve done that with all of my previous hobbies, I wasn’t too good at not lining myself up for doing that.
I was doing photo sessions that I didn’t enjoy, and only lead to stress and frustration.
This time around, I’m going to focus on street and event photography as that is where my passion lies. Taking pictures of flowers, trees, family, friends, and strangers at events might not interest many people, but it makes me happy, and that’s really the point.
It is with that in mind that I crafted the following gear list that I hope to be able to at least rent at some point, if not own.
What I would like to have:
- Canon 10-22mm USM Lens – $800
- Canon 100mm Macro Lens – $650
- Canon 70-200 F4 L IS – $1300
- Canon 135mm f2.0 L – $1200
- EF Mount Extension Tubes – $100
Canon Wired Remote for T3i
- USB SD Card Reader
- Better Camera Bag
- Better Tripod
There are so many cool accessories for cameras that would really increase my enjoyment of photography once again, and there are many things I am looking forward to shooting.
Update: I found my wired remote for my old T2i and it works great for my T3i.
