Thats easy. Eviscera, Dave has such a creative mind. His images blow me away everytime!
There may be better photographers out there for portraits or landscapes etc but just for his mind alone he is a winner.

I see a pregnant pause in progress. I think it should be one question per Epz'er at a time, as several questions does not allow to much room for expansion.

Iain you have been asked about your kit, you mention the 40D and two lenses.

Can you be more specific, I am talking lenses lighting tripod filters etc., etc., etc., it is always interesting to see what other users have in their kit bag?

Interesting, apart from my kit camera being a D80 and the light source a SB800, lense length tripod SD's filter etc., identical.

Quote:i'm happy with the kit i have

You must have a dream that one day you want to own a the Canon equivalent of the D3s (sorry I'm a Nikon freak not up on Canon stuff)?

My dream is the D700, cos I'm a gadget freak, but won't pay the money for the D3 series even if I could afford it.

Hi Iain,

Two questions if i may:
1. Would you consider using your flash mounted on your tripod fired by a wireless trigger a worthwhile technique?
2. Do you struggle with ISO/shutter speed on darker days, and have you ever used one of those cheap ebay reflectors to help add light?

Dream kit would be hassleblad but realisticly a 5Dmk2 body would be nice, i think my 85mm would be better on a full frame camera.

Maybe once i've figured out how to take good pictures with just my camera i will progress to off camera flash stuff.
If i even start to struggle with shutter speeds i change to my 85mm 1.8 on darker days. I got a reflector with my elemental lighting kit but never used it yet. The last 2 shoots i was on it was only me and the model so nobody to hold reflectors. Could have done it myself but prefer to concentrate on one thing at a time since i'm just starting out with portraits.

I see you are a fully fledged ePz member - something I keep pondering over - What made you take the plunge?

Never gave it much thought really. I logged in, had a quick look around and decided there and then to sign up for 5 years. Friendly, colourful and full of helpful people.

Always on here when i'm nightshift so will be asking plenty of questions instead of answering them.
Hopefully my son will be born so i can give him lots of attention.

What are your favourite photographic and non-photographic gadgets and why?
G6DDS 8 231 Scotland

Fav photographic gadget would be my triggers, have taken so many pictures of me and my better half with them.

Non-photographic is either my ipod or amazon kindle. Both keep me going when on 12 hour nightshifts (so does epz)
