What equipment do you use? // Are there pieces you come prepared with for the unexpected challenges of the shoot?
I shoot with a variety of Canon DSLR bodies and lenses including 5d Mk II, 40D, 550D, 17-40mm L, 24-105mm L, 24mm and 40mm prime, Rokinon 14mm, various filters including 8x ND, ND grad, and polarizers. I am now moving toward more prime lenses for their enhanced sharpness and contrast. I have recently been shooting with a 1 meter motorized slider rail system (PocketSlider) for parallax motion effects. Particularly when shooting in the Pacific Northwest and the Cascade and Olympic mountains, I need to bring rain protection gear since this is a very wet climate and once a time lapse set is started, I may have to continue for hours.
