Pa­trick’s kit

Amateur Photographer - - Photo Stories -

Pa­trick’s kit com­prises two Canon EOS 5D Mark II bod­ies with 35mm and 24mm lenses. ‘I like the Mark II chip,’ he says, ‘as for me it acts a lot like film. I un­der­stand its pa­ram­e­ters and its tem­per­a­ment.’ He shoots in full man­ual­ex­po­sure mode and even uses a hand­held light me­ter, tak­ing in­ci­dent read­ings from the scene. ‘I don’t use the me­ter on the cam­era,’ he says. ‘I want a re­ally true light read­ing. I only go to aper­ture or shut­ter pri­or­ity if it’s some­thing re­ally busy.’ Pa­trick has also re­cently started us­ing a Fujifilm GFX 50S. ‘I didn’t like it at first be­cause of the dig­i­tal viewfinder, as I’m very much an op­ti­cal guy. But I just needed to trust what it was do­ing, and I like it now.’
