Photo Gear

Over the past several years have amassed quite an arsenal of gear to pursue the art, science, and technology of photography.

Although one can be quite successful with a limited amount of gear (e.g., a good camera and lens is really all that’s necessary), professionals and amateurs alike often eventually acquire a sizable collection. Given the continuing evolution of digital photography, the ease with which one can acquire new gear with merely the click of a mouse, and the rapid introduction of new & better products, it’s certainly easy to add more.
