We Ask Photographers: What's Your Go To Lens and Camera?

While a photographer's vision comes first, there are many creatives that prefer to just use one camera and one lens. The reason for this varies greatly: maybe the combo helps them get most of their work done, or maybe they love the way the two work together. We recently talked to various photographers asking them what their go-to lens and camera are.

And the answers range across the entire spectrum.

First Impressions: Nikon 85mm f1.4G by Stacy Pearsall

I've recently gotten my hands on the Nikon 85mm F/1.4G lens, and I have to say I'm not disappointed. I put the lens to the test by shooting portraits in my studio of three young ladies who are also budding photographers.

Not only did the lens live up to my expectations, it surpassed them. I used the lens with my Nikon D3s, and one Elinchrom Digital Style 600RX flash with a Rotalux Softbox 39"x39" light modifier.

Diving in Alaska, and the Rules of Underwater Photography

When people think of traveling for scuba diving, they think of warm blue water locations such as the Red Sea, Australia, Fuji, the Bahamas, Grand Cayman, Cozumel, and Bonaire. But Alaska? The green rich waters of this temperate rain forest are full of life and photographic opportunities. A trip to Alaska is a true adventure, both above and below the surface. My dive buddy Olga Torrey and I decided to experience Alaska on the liveaboard dive boat, the Nautilus Swell. This 100-year-old refurbished tugboat is the perfect platform for cold-water exploration, and is very photographer-friendly. The crew is well versed in dive procedures in this very different environment. We would board the boat in Juneau, and after a week of diving, we would depart from Sitka.

How to Choose the Lens That's Right for You

The reason for this is because different lenses are meant for different shooting situations. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a lens (or lenses) for your camera system.
