Inside My Digital camera Bag | Martin Makowski

Hello there! I’m Martin, a marriage photographer from Nottingham, UK. I concentrate on documentary marriage ceremony images and I’ve been doing so for practically a decade. I’m a curious observer and love taking pictures weddings in a very unobtrusive method.

I imagine that marriage ceremony images must be as distinctive and genuine because the folks in it. I don’t apply a template or work to any pre-planned concepts. I strategy every marriage ceremony with a recent thoughts and open eyes. In continuously altering environment spontaneous photograph alternatives await. It’s a bit like road images at weddings.

Discovering myself amongst a big crowd of individuals that’s absolutely loaded with constructive feelings is sort of a free ticket to a Funland! Being round completely happy folks makes me completely happy. Creating significant and storytelling imagery for folks is each very thrilling and fulfilling.


Fuji X-T3 x2 – Till early 2018 I used to be a loyal Nikon shooter, I then determined to go mirrorless. I switched to Fuji and completely love this method. It was among the finest selections I’ve made.

I’m not a digital camera geek and technical points of photographic gear aren’t that vital to me. If the digital camera is able to capturing the photograph I’m aiming for, it’s a winner. Fuji provides me precisely that, but it’s such a pleasure to deal with.

It could sound bizarre, however I someway really feel an emotional reference to Fuji cameras. I like them for his or her picture character, colors, grain, dimension, and publicity triangle dials.


Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 – That is my most used lens through the marriage ceremony day and it’s truthful to say that I seize 85% of my pictures with this magnificence. I usually {photograph} in ambient mild and would solely attain for the flash on the dance ground, so having a quicker lens is an enormous bonus. It stays connected to at least one digital camera physique all day lengthy.

Fujinon WR 23mm f/2 – That is my go-to lens for road images, days out, and journey. I completely find it irresistible for picture high quality and dimension. At weddings, it often sits in my automobile as a backup to the principle 23mm f/1.4.

Fujinon 56mm f/1.2 – This lens goes on my second X-T3 physique. I educated my photographic eye to see in both 35mm or 85mm, it’s a pure gem. Nevertheless, it solely covers a small proportion of the general marriage ceremony shoot.

Fujinon 16mm WR f/2.8 – This can be a very current alternative to its large brother the 16mm f/1.4. I exploit this lens primarily on the dance ground once I’m tremendous near the motion, or in small rooms the place 23mm is a tad too slender.

To flash the motion on the dance ground I exploit my trusty pocket FLASHQ 20 from LightPix Lab. I even have a Nissin i60 that I often pull out of the bag, often when the FLASHQ battery goes flat.

On high of the talked about gear, I pack a couple of objects into my Peak Design On a regular basis Sling bag 10L together with varied SD reminiscence playing cards from Sandisk and Lexar, plus a couple of spare batteries for my Fujis. To not overlook a tiny umbrella for wet days.

Over time I went by some digital camera gear obsessions and by eliminating unneeded and undesirable stuff, I discovered my good cameras and lenses. | @makowskiphotography
