Note to Viewers
So far with all of my images I have used natural existing light. I haven't used flashes, or reflectors or any artificial light source. I feel this is important to tell you because It shows that you don't have to have fancy equipment, (a tripod yes) but nothing else. I also haven't used any photoshop, again this helps others understand that it isn't a necessity. I am sure I will use it sometime in the future and I'll try to remember to let you know. Feel free to ask questions in the comments if you want to know how I set up for a particular shot. I am shooting in RAW format thanks to my friend Jbwolfer, I avoided it for a long time because I was doing my editing in photoshop and had to convert my picture files to jpeg to edit them, I didn't see the point of shooting raw. Now that I'm converted my hard drive space is maxed out but believe me, it is worth it if you have raw capabilities. I edit in raw with the software that came with my camera, nothing fancy but very powerful if you shoot in raw. I shoot with a Canon 50D mostly with my 24-105 mm lens. For the macro type pictures I use an extension tube in addition to my 24-105 lens. Very simple, and easy, anyone can do it.
