| p.2 #8 · Can you explain the 70-200 to me? and lens redundancy. |
1. Yep the big 3 are the standards and maybe its just a result of convenience.
2. I hear you on the primes, to me it feels more artistic to use a prime and have to work for a shot, .
1. Weddings are fast moving, almost like sports. The LAST thing I want to do is to be fumbling around trying to change lenses, missing shots. Or, trying to back up in a crowded room. I've been shooting about 2,000 shots per wedding, and a "real" pro shoots twice that. It's as much about speed in getting fleeting shots off as anything.
2. Keep in mind I am still shooting 4x5, and love to use lenses that are 100 to 150+ years old. I actively shoot everything from a 2012 Nikon DSLR to a 1943 Leica to a 1904 Brownie to an 1880s half plate tailboard to an 1847 Voigtlander lens. I own and shoot just about everything ever made. I can honestly say that I quit thinking that artistry comes from gear quite a while ago. Artistry comes from artists, not gear. Gear does not make you more creative. I can be just as creative/artistic with anything I hold in my hands. It's my my mind that limits me.
