Photography FAQs

We’ve had some questions about photography on the Just Irvine website. Here’s the rundown on our favorite photography gear! *This post contains affiliate links.

What camera do you have?

Almost all photos on Just Irvine were taken with the Canon EOS 6d 20.2MP DSLR. It’s relatively lightweight for a full-frame DSLR and works really well in low light situations.

What lenses do you use?

As nerdy as it sounds, I own all prime lenses: Canon 35mm f/2.0, Canon 50mm f/1.4, and Canon 85mm f/1.8.

For other focal lengths that I don’t shoot as often, I have rented and loved the Canon 16-35mm f/.2.8 IICanon 24-70mm f/2.8 II, and Canon 70-200 f/2.8 II.

If you want to try out lenses before buying, renting is the way to go. My go-to place in Irvine is Irvine Pro Photo. Pro tip: if you rent on a Friday, you can keep the lens until Monday morning and just pay for one day.

What other photography gear do you use?

Manfrotto MKBFRC4-BH Befree Carbon Fiber Tripod with Ball Head

Oben CTM-2500 5-Section Pro Carbon Fiber Compact Travel Monopod

Think Tank Photo Retrospective 30

Canon Speedlight 430EX II Flash
