What's in my bag

I always get asked what kind of gear I use to shoot my pictures.
So here you get a list with a selection of the most important stuff in my backpack and studio. But please remember: Never overestimate the equipment. Forget about all reviews you read in the glossy magazines, forget all blog posts, all ISO comparisons and lens tests.

The most important tool you own is your LAZY ASS. So get the fuck out in the wild and shoot the hell out of your cheap camera. Every pic will be worth it.

The Cameras

  • Nikon D800 DSLR (fullframe, 36 megapixels)
  • Nikon D750 DSLR (fullframe, 24 megapixels) as Backup
  • Nikon D90 DSLR (APS-C 12 megapixels)
  • Nikon F5 SLR (35 mm film)

The Lenses

  • Nikkor 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 DX
  • Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 FX
  • Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 FX (when I'm too lazy for its big brother (14-24mm))
  • Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 DX
  • Sigma 35mm f/1.4 ART
  • Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 FX Macro
  • Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 FX (only for backup, I mostly hate this zoom range)
  • Nikkor 80-200 f/2.8 FX
  • Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 FX Macro
  • Nikkor 600mm f/4E FL ED (only for sports, this beast is way too heavy for hiking)

The other stuff

  • 2 Elinchrom BRX 500 & 1 BRX 250
  • 2 Manfrotto 055X PRO-B Tripods
  • 1 Manfrotto befree MKB FRA4-BH (I use this light one for longer backpack trips)
  • 1 Roundabout NP Deluxe panoramic nodal point adapter
  • Datacolor Spider CUBE
  • Lowepro Backpacks

A little goodie

Andis cold winter warmth

Thanks for actually reading this page. Because I can't give you a cookie (although I totally would like to!) you get a little digital treat here: A brand new LUT (look up table) for easy and smooth color correction in Photoshop, Premiere or After Effects. I created this thing, because a wanted a link between a cold crisp winter evening and the last bit of warmth that the last sunrays provide.
Use this thing for all kind of purposes: Andi's Crisp Winter Warmth LUT (850 KB) (right click >>> save as...)

If you forgot how to use this kind of amazing piece of software, I wrote a tutorial that you'll find here on my page.
