My Photography Equipment

My Photography Equipment

(updated 31.3.2020) I get often asked about what photography equipment we use in different situations. What about equipment to film videos?

Last year we invested in our photography gear and made some new additions. Our photography concentrates mainly on yoga photos and purchasing the right gear for versatile content is important.

We like to push ourselves and each other to create something different. It’s refreshing for us but also for others too whom have shared this journey with me. Especially on Instagram as you see my photos almost daily!

 

Photography equipment

Cameras we use for photography

 

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

The Mark IV is the main camera we use for all yoga photography.

Fujifilm X-T30

This is our second camera and it’s so light to carry with you! If we have to do a short hike to take photos, sometimes we only carry the Fujifilm with us.

 

Photography Lenses

 

Canon lenses:

  • Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L II USM (versatile/most used nowadays)
  • Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM (close ups)
  • Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM (longer distance)

Fujifilm Fujinon Lenses:

  • Fujinon XF 23mm 1.4 R
  • Fujinon XF 18-55mm F/2.8-4 R LM OIS (back up lens)

Cameras we use to film videos

For yoga videos we use all of the cameras above! Mainly we film videos with the fujifilm xt-30 on a tripod. It has great quality and here you can see some black and white yoga video examples.

For our video episodes we have the Go Pro Hero 8 on a flexible tripod. And a Go Pro Hero 7 attached to my boyfriend’s camera body to record also while he is taking photos of me.

 

Urgent photography situations

It has happened on a few occasions… We have gone on a walk on the mountains and suddenly the nature surroundings and the light look amazing for a photo! But we don’t have a camera with us...

Mobile phone cameras have advanced a lot in the past years. Especially with the latest models you can take photos that are more than good enough for social media!

We both have a Huawei P30 Pro and we have actually used it for some of our photography too.

Drone Photography

My boyfriend has many years of photography experience with drones. Currently he is using the DJI Mavic 2 pro. Combining yoga with aerial photos is fun!

I hope some of the photography equipment suggestions were useful to you! You can also have a look at what kind of yoga photography styles we have created with our equipment!

All your photos are lovely (I follow you on IG) – you do a wonderful job.
This post of your gear is interesting. As a photographer myself I know that this is an ultra-high end list of gear. Pretty sweet! You’re certainly making good use of it!
