Raise your hand if you’ve thought the same things: I want to create luxury photos, but I don’t want to deal with all the gear and equipment that I see everyone else using. I want to create luxury photos, but I don’t want to invest a fortune just yet to make them. I want to create luxury photos, but I want to do it in a way that makes me feel comfortable in my element.
When I began as a photographer, I was completely overwhelmed by all the technical aspects of every piece of gear I thought I needed. I felt embarrassed if I didn’t have the best equipment and the top-of-the-line gear and all the gadgets and gizmos. So I learned as much as I could and we invested in as much as we could. Sometimes, I did something “incorrectly” by accident, but still got the result I wanted. Other times, things broke or were damaged, and I had to improvise. Over time, I realized that I could feel more at ease, more comfortable, and didn’t need to purchase the top-of-the-line everything, and the results I created in my work were just as amazing.
So I began looking for what else I could make happen with tools I threw together.
