I started photography in 2006 when I was in middle school. My first camera is a very basic Canon PowerShot A20 IS where I would borrow from my dad and took photos of literally everything. A year later when my dad retired his work camera Canon PowerShot S2 IS, I immediately took ownership over it. This ‘prosumer’ S2 looks very professional to the eyes of a 15-year old, so I would take this camera with me everywhere and volunteered to be a photographer for any school event.
It wasn’t until 2009 after I won some prize from a science competition (YSC 2009), did I have my first DSLR. It was a Canon EOS 1000D, the cheapest, lowest tier DSLR one could find. By then, my photography style had narrowed down quite a bit. I’ve always been amazed by the beauty of nature particularly waterfalls and mountains. Since then, the main subjects of my photos have been nature and landscape.
In 2015, I upgraded my gears to a Canon EOS 6D, which was the very first time I got to experience the pure magic of full-frame DSLR. You really can’t go back to cropped-frame, especially if you’re a wide-angle photographer.
Currently, my gears are:
- Canon EOS 6D
- Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L
- Canon EF 100mm f/2.8
- Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM
- Lee Filter graduated NDs and 10x Big Stopper
