PostSubject: Passionate photographer   Wed Dec 07, 2016 8:34 am

My name is Andre Nel from Centurion, South Africa.  I am not a professional photographer; I am just an ordinary guy who loves photography, and more specific wildlife photography. I am still full time employed and do this just as a hobby.  I am still learning every day.  I have done an introduction to photography course through SHAW Academy which helped me a lot to understand the basics of photography. It was worth it.

None of the photo’s on this website are edited, I am a strong believer (right or wrong) that, what you see is what I shoot. To me, the worst thing that could happen to my photos are that they could be cropped to get rid of something in the photo that I did not had control over or to get rid of excess background.

WHAT IS IN MY BAG?

CANON 7D Mark II
CANON 1200D
Canon EFS 18-55mm Macro
SIGMA 150-600MM F5-6.3 Contemporary Lens
Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro Lens
Vello 31mm, 21mm, 13mm Extender tubes
USB DOC for Sigma lens
iFoto (IF18) Tripod kit
Sigma EF-530 DG ST Flash
BAG – THINKTANK Airport Commuter



MY WISH LIST
Sigma 1.4 1401 converter
Ring flash for macro photogrophy

As you will see from “WHAT IS IN MY BAG”, that I do not have the most expensive equipment that is available.  This is just to show that one can also take acceptable photos with average equipment. As a beginner I always believed (wrongly) that one must have the best. But on the contrary, I started with a Canon 350D and then moved to the Canon 1200D as the Tamron lens that I purchase did not work with the 350D.  The 1200D is a very capable camera. I use it for my macro photography and with the Tamron lens. I bought the Sigma lens for the Canon 1200D but focusing does not work well as 1200D is to slow with the Sigma.  I found a secondhand 7D for a bargain and bought it.  Now the Sigma lens is permanently on the D7. AWESOME combination.
