Inside My Digicam Bag | José David Riquelme

My identify is Jose D. Riquelme and I’m a younger forty-two-year-old graphic designer and photographer from Murcia, a metropolis in southeast Spain. I’ve been a graphic designer for twenty years and on an excellent day 5 years in the past I made a decision to alter from utilizing images to really taking my very own.

My essential curiosity in images is with landscapes and night time surroundings.

After I began 5 years in the past I began utilizing the Canon EOS 6d Mark II with the Sigma Artwork 14mm f/1.8. It was an ideal match for my night time images because the digicam dealt with noise very nicely and mixed extraordinarily nicely with the Sigma 14mm f/1.8 to supply sharp photos.

Just a few months in the past I modified to a Sony A7R IV, the sensible flip display screen and 61MP sensor had been what made me resolve. I can’t conceive of life with out both the flip display screen or the 61MP picture sensor as they make it attainable for me to go one step additional with my panoramas.

Sony A7R IV– that is the proper dimension digicam I would like for taking pictures my panoramas and along with the invariant ISO 32000 that reduces noise within the low- and mid-sensitivity ranges it’s excellent for my night time images. Different robust factors of this digicam are the shutter that closes to guard the sensor when altering lenses and the unbelievable flip display screen.

Having extra megapixels with every other digicam can be inconvenient to work with in panoramas as I would want a NASA-style laptop to edit and transfer them round.


Sony FE 14mm F1.8 GM – that is very sharp and really gentle and its f/1.8 aperture makes it straightforward for me to work on my night time images.

Sony FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM – this lens can also be fabulous. It’s an all-rounder and with it, you possibly can work from a 24mm panorama to a 70mm portrait. It is extremely versatile to stroll across the metropolis with the digicam in hand but it surely has the downside of being fairly heavy.

Sony FE 100-400mm F4.5–5.6 GM OSS– this lens is a delight to make use of. Its sharpness is second to none whatever the focal size you select. It is extremely snug to put on and its weight is just not as excessive as others of comparable dimension.


I primarily use a ball of sunshine for my images costing solely three {dollars} that I purchase in a standard retailer. I discover this to be sufficient if you know the way to regulate the sunshine correctly.


Lowepro ProTactic BP 450 AW II – that is my backpack and I discover it extremely versatile. I can configure all the pieces inside including dietary supplements to hold the tripod or a bottle of water. It is extremely snug to put on and to stroll for a number of hours.


Benro Mach3 – after utilizing many manufacturers I feel that this one has the standard and hardness that I would like. It’s a snug medium-sized tripod that gives all the pieces that I would like. I feel that carrying a big tripod is inconvenient and doesn’t supply something additional.

{Hardware} & Software program

To course of my photos I take advantage of DxO PureRaw which cleans noise, and sharpens and optimises my raws earlier than modifying them, it’s unbelievable. I then undergo my modifying in Digicam Uncooked and Photoshop. 

Last Phrases

I feel we’re shedding actual photographers who create new images whereas making a crowd of people that solely copy images that they’ve seen.

That’s why I feel there are two kinds of photographers: picture collectors and photographers who create new issues! | @josed.riquelme
