Cafe Tables

I spent a bit of time going through my photos from Italy again last night. Seeing all of the wonderful history really makes me ready for another European vacation, although I’m not sure that’s going to happen any time soon (it’s on my list though!).

One thing I’ve noticed going back through these photos is how different my style of photography was a year ago. Interestingly enough, I think it mostly has to do with the lenses I had in my bag at that point in time…a 24-105L and a 70-200L. For most of the trip I had my trusty 24-105 glued to my 50D, and I think that lens really helped shape what kind of shots I was able to get in Italy. Since then I’ve sold my 70-200L and bought a Sigma 10-20mm…the latter is what I shoot with most often now and I know it’s had a big impact on my style of photography. What are your thoughts…has the gear in your bag ever changed your style of photography?
