Inside My Digicam Bag | José David Riquelme

My title 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 most important curiosity in images is with landscapes and evening 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 evening images because the digicam dealt with noise very nicely and mixed extraordinarily nicely with the Sigma 14mm f/1.8 to supply sharp photographs.

Only some months in the past I modified to a Sony A7R IV, the good flip display and 61MP sensor have been what made me determine. I can’t conceive of life with out both the flip display or the 61MP picture sensor as they make it potential for me to go one step additional with my panoramas.

Sony A7R IV– that is the right measurement digicam I want 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 evening images. Different robust factors of this digicam are the shutter that closes to guard the sensor when altering lenses and the implausible flip display.

Having extra megapixels with another digicam could be inconvenient to work with in panoramas as I would wish a NASA-style pc 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 evening 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 rather versatile to stroll across the metropolis with the digicam in hand however it has the disadvantage 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 rather comfy to put on and its weight will not be as excessive as others of comparable measurement.


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


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


Benro Mach3 – after utilizing many manufacturers I believe that this one has the standard and hardness that I want. It’s a snug medium-sized tripod that gives the whole lot that I want. I believe that carrying a big tripod is inconvenient and doesn’t provide something additional.

{Hardware} & Software program

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

Ultimate Phrases

I believe we’re dropping actual photographers who create new photographs whereas making a crowd of people that solely copy photographs that they’ve seen.

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