His setup differs from shoot to shoot. When it comes to outdoor night photography, he usually brings along two cameras with tripods, one is used for longer image sequences whilst the other is adapted to point and shoot. For daytime, he generally uses one camera paired with one or two prime lenses. He switched between using the D800E, D810A or the D3x.
He prefers using the D810A as part of his astrophotography kit, whilst he finds the D800E is suited to a range of uses. When out on the road, Wilson tends to grab his favourite prime lenses, the AF NIKKOR 35mm f/2D or AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G as well as keeping a AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR wide-angle lens on hand.
He has relied heavily on the AF NIKKOR 35mm f/2D as it is portable, affordable, and high quality with a large aperture. “It performs well with close-up shots and also provides a shallow depth of field, giving me a wide range of uses. When I can only bring just one lens, this is the one.”
