I shoot mainly with Canon equipment using camera bodies with both full frame and cropped sensors and prime and zoom lenses from 20 mm wide angle to 500 mm f4.

I use  a Sigma 105mm macro lens which performs admirably.
I use a range of CF cards preferring not to use the very high capacity options. I’d rather change cards in the field than risk a malfunction when so many images are at stake.

I post-process with Adobe Bridge and Photoshop CC and although I have Lightroom CC, I’ve tended to stick with my tried and tested workflow.
