These are a few short articles that I wrote to answer recurring questions about some of the gear aspects of photography. There are very few absolutes in regard to the gear that you use and your own personal technique. I wrote these using my own photography as a frame of reference. I shoot almost exclusively scenic images using only available light. If you’re shooting sports, weddings or birds in flight you may have very different needs. I urge you to get your information from as many sources as possible and use them to formulate your own opinion. You know your own needs better than anyone else.
