My workhorse camera is my Nikon D750. I use it to film everything and take 95% of my photos with it as well. The other 5% of my photography is done with my iPhone 7 and sometimes my older Nikon D5000.
Lens-wise, I do most of my filming with my Nikon AF-S FX NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4. I shoot most of my stills with my Nikon AF-S FX Micro-NIKKOR 2177 60mm f/2.8. The also use my Sigma 35mm F1.4 ART and my Sigma 85mm f/1.4 ART, but photos using those lenses are more likely to appear on my Instagram account as they’re typically landscapes or portraits.
My tripod is a Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 055—it has a boom arm that allows me to film overhead shots. I also use a Manfrotto MHXPRO-BHQ2 XPRO Ball Head as the tripod itself doesn’t attach directly to a camera.
For lighting I have two large continuous lighting soft boxes from StrobePro. The precise model I have has been discontinued, but they still have plenty of similar options.
I use a TASCAM DR-05 Portable Digital Recorder attached to a boom mic stand or the flash hot show on my camera to record audio.
I’ve got a small HDTV I picked up second hand for $10 so I can frame shots that I’m in—it attaches to my camera with an HDMI cable and gives me a live feed so I can make sure I’m in the shot.
I edit everything with Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
