Canon EOS Rebel T3
Tamron 17-50mm F2.8 AF (mostly use)
Canon EF-S 18-55mm F3.5
N.B. : I shoot in RAW image but then I convert in TIFF for a retouching session in GIMP. Then I finally convert in JPG for Web publishing.
When retouching pictures, I need a deep ambiance so the best way I’ve found to be in this mood is to listen to SOMA FM. This is a listeners-supported and commercial-free web radio from San Francisco. There is few music style you can listen to and this is always non commercial music from a huge variety.
