CAMERA: Canon EOS R: I use this set up for all my Architecture & Interior Shoot. Canon EOS R is light-weight mirrorless camera & Canon 17mm Tilt-Shift Lens is a manual focus lens. Canon EOS R has built-in Focus Peaking & Focus Guide functions, which allow me to focus confidently.
MONITOR: EIZO ColorEdge CG2420: EIZO Coloredge comes with a built-in calibrator on the monitor & it will auto calibrate every 200 hours. It also helps to ensure the monitor has consistent & accurate colour all the time, which is part of an important element in my editing to prints workflow.
COMPUTER: MacBook Pro 15" 2018 2.9 GHz Intel Core i9 32GB 2400 MHz DDR, Radeon Pro Vega 20 4 GB, Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB: I have used different Mac systems for the last 20 years. I prefer MacBook Pro as it’s portable & I can bring it around when I am traveling & edit on the go. I also used my MacBook Pro when I conduct my Photoshop Editing Workshops on site. Mac systems are relatively a better choice for editing as they are built for people in the creative industry.
SOFTWARE: Adobe Photoshop: I used mainly Adobe Photoshop to do all my photo editing. I prefer to work on layers & masking, which is non-destructive to my images. I have also been using some useful Photoshop plugins for my editing & some companies produced Artificial intelligence (AI) technology on the plugin, which is quite amazing.
BACKUP: Seagate Hard Drive: I have been using Seagate 5TB hard disk, which has been serving me well so far. The reasons for using Portable Hard Disk are plug & play with no need of power cable & nowadays they are affordable.
STORAGE: SanDisk SD Card: Since I started photography 11 years ago, I have been using SanDisk SD Card. Stability & durability of memory cards are very important as they store all our photos during shoots.
KEYBOARD: Alcatroz XplorerGo! 300BT Wireless keyboard: I have been using Mac Systems for the last 20 years & this wireless keyboard is made for Mac users.
MOUSE: Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse: The wireless connection frees up my USB ports. It has a sleek, lightweight & ergonomic comfort design that fits in my palm perfectly.
