I am often asked, “What kind of camera equipment do you have?” So I thought it might be fun to put a polyvore collection together to show you my camera gear.
I think this will be when the velvet rope comes down, the curtain falls, and all of those other horrible cliches are put into play and you see I really don’t have an unattainable, or incredibly impressive “bag of tricks”. My camera gear has been collected since I started getting serious about my hobby roughly three and a half years ago.
I won’t lie, photography is an expensive hobby. Them’s the breaks. The more you get into it, the more expensive it gets. Yeah, I know, I said that a great photographer can take great pictures with a point and shoot. I stand by that! BUT most of the time, the automatic controls of a point and shoot can only make you happy for so long; if you’re like me, you will eventually want to play around with your focus and exposure. It’s all about control people (for me, anyway). And then, the lenses! Oh the lenses. I could make an entire wishlist filled completely with lenses I drool over on a daily basis. So, I decided to do just that. The first group of gear is what I currently have. The second? My dream gear. ::drool::

I have this AWESOME camera strap, which I purchased at the etsy shop: HowardAvenue and I love it. It’s durable, long enough to wear my camera across my chest if necessary and just plain cute.
You will also find, among the litter and chapstick tubes, a lens brush and an orange lens cloth.
Now, the good stuff: My Dream Camera gear:
