Nikon D3s, Canon 5D Mark II, Hasselblad H4D, various lenses (all f2.8) from 14mm to 200mm. My goto kit for most work is the Nikon D3s with the 14-24, 24-70, 70-200 lenses. The ISO range of D3s is just phenomenal. I have exhibited images printed 5 feet wide which have been shot at ISO 9000.\n\nA picture is worth 1,000 words Your comments:\n\nIt is true, especially in an age where we are even more impatient, a lot of times a photoessay might work rather than a text heavy article.\n\nA word of advice for young budding photography enthusiast:\n\nGet into photography as a career only if you think you cannot do anything better. Else it’s not worth taking the plunge as a career. As a hobby, try and focus more on composition and learning about lenses.\n\nA point and shoot camera you would recommend:\n\niPhone 4s/5\n\nA SLR you would recommend:\n\nEntry level – Nikon D3200, Prosumer – Nikon D700, Pro – Nikon D800\n\nFavorite shooting destination: Germany\n\nWhat do you enjoy most photographing?\n\nLandscapes\n\nOn photography in India:\n\nWe have a long way to go in India when it comes to photography. We have some of the best talent in the world, which is fantastic. Issue is with most new comers. The number of people I come across who don’t have enough technical skills is simply disturbing.\n\nA photographer you look up to & Why?\n\nPrabhuda Dasgupta. He is easily the best Indian photographer in my opinion. His work was simple, elegant and inspiring. His passing away has been a big loss to the photography community.\n\nWebsite:\n\nFollow Aneesh on Twitter: @aneeshb\n\n
