Not so daily blog #9

It has been a while and a busy couple of months. I have been learning alot of new techniques and working on pushing myself out of box to try new styles of shooting. I have done quite a few shoots in a studio environment with the Sigma Sd Quattro H and really tried to push its limits. I have also found new love with the Fuji Xpro2 when paired with ultra fast manual glass. 

When I first started shooting I thought best gear meant I could get the best shots. But then I would goto flickr and look what some talented people were doing great things with the same equipment I had or even less then. Thats when I realized I needed to start pushing myself and my equipment harder. So I made sure I had the basics which to me are a decent set of primes, a speed light and a led light. I also have two vastly different camera systems. The Sigma Sdqh and the Fuji Xpro2, both have great image quality but specialize in very different things. The Sigma offers unyieldingly wonderful image quality if you work for it, and the Fuji has very good quality and a good autofocus system when paired with native glass.

As you can see the coloring is very different from the Sigma to the Fuji but both are beautiful in their own way !
