Because people usually ask me what use, here are my tools of trade:
– I use a Canon Rebel T2i
– I have three lenses…
– My favorite lens to use is the Macro Lens. The DOF is really nice and shallow, which sometimes makes the bokeh/background appear to have a “painted” look.
– I do have a tripod, but I very rarely use it.
– I have a homemade light reflector, made of aluminum foil taped onto flattened and cut cardboard box. Super easy to make and it works like a charm.
