Nilufer contacted me about a week before her BIG day. This wedding was planned in just a few days and was SO MUCH FUN – and REAL. Imagine getting married, with your best friends joining you in an intimate ceremony – AND on OU/TX weekend – with a bunch of Sooners! I met Nil, for […]

I get asked so often:  “What type of equipment do you use?” It’s about time I have an easy little post to share my goods… wait, this is LONG and detailed and should be a good read! Make sure to keep in mind, that every photographer is different, so what I have may not be […]

Kate Williams Arden,

I follow your blog and facebook page. I love your work! I have a quick question for some experienced like yourself. I use Lightroom 3, and am thinking of getting photoshop. What version do you recommend? I have been doing photography for a year now and loving it. Any advise you might have on with version of photoshop would be great!

Gerald Stidham Great info on the type of equipment you carry. got some great idealsthanksAugust 27, 2011 – 10:42 pm

Life with Kaishon I loved this little lesson : ) Thank you. Your tilt shift is way cool. Your pictures are so pretty.July 31, 2011 – 6:41 pm

Melissa :) I love this post! Thank you for sharing & I love the examples! I find it interesting that your ISO doesn’t drop below 200, even on your outdoor shots. I wonder if this is because it allows you to raise your SS. My SS is always too darn slow which as you know, is not super with little children. And can I say I don’t like the tilt lens! LOL I need/want the 24-70 & now need to consider the 85! :)July 29, 2011 – 10:23 pm

Hayley Roebuck Great post Arden! Unfortunately for my husband, my Christmas list just grew :)July 22, 2011 – 11:25 pm

sandra bludau Awesome post! This helped, because I was deciding on upgrading my camera to Mark II or getting a 50mm 1.2L. I have an 85mm 1.2L and just may have to go with the Mark II. Thanks! I know this sort of post takes time to do and thank you so much for sharing!July 22, 2011 – 7:08 pm

Meghan Thank you so much for this post, Arden. I love when pro photographers share this information! I upgraded my crummy kit lens to the 50 f/1.4 a couple years ago and just recently added the 24-70 and I love it! I am a huge fan of your images and processing! Thanks for all the great inspiration and for being so open to teaching others. I truly look forward to your blog posts!July 22, 2011 – 4:29 pm

Julie Thanks for sharing your equipment Arden! I’m a Nikon girl myself but it’s really neat to see what your Canon does! :)July 22, 2011 – 3:49 pm

Heidi Williams This blog post has made my friday! I am serious – I have been a lurker of your blog for about a year now (I don’t even recall how I found it, since I’m in Oregon) but I really admire your work. I have been so tempted to write you an email and be one of “those” people “what kind of lens do you use?” but I don’t want to imply that it’s the lens that makes the work…. It’s you’re talent first! The 24-70 is at the top of my wish list. Since I’m not taking my photographer super seriously, I’ve been renting as it’s a bit of an investment for me. However, I was thrilled to see it’s a lens you love and use a lot. I also fell in love with the 85, but i think I should pick up the 24-70 first! Again, thank you so much for sharing this information!! You have an amazing talent and are such an inspiration.July 22, 2011 – 3:41 pm
