My second Leica SL has arrived. My studio set-up is now complete.
I receive several emails every months asking about my setup so I decided to post a little compendium with some information on my gear. As you can see here we have my little Soho (small office / home office). When I’m not shooting I spend several hours every day in this room
I mainly do my post production on a Window 7 64 bit pc. A quad core i7 with 32 gbyte of Ram and a GTX 580 graphic card. Several terabytes of raid hard drives and two SSD all around the office. I have a second backup of the most important files in another secure location.
I do all my post production and 3D work using a Wacom Cintiq 21UX. I have a second monitor (a 40″ LED TV) for a bigger visual (..and videogames!).
I’m working with the Adobe Creative Cloud environment (Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere, After Effect and so on..).
For 3D Renderings I just chose Luxology Modo 601 and ZBrush, but I’m still in the beginning so it's training time. I’m also learning to use Blender 3D.
My laptop is a 13″ MacbookPro with 8 Gbyte of Ram with which i use a Wacom Intuos 5 M tablet.
The complete Adobe Suite is also on the Mac, along with Motion and Final Cut X.
I work mainly with Canon Cameras. I own a 5D Mark III and a 5D Mark II. Several Canon prime and zoom lenses and few Manual focus Nikon lenses that I use for video.
Two Elinchrom quadra RX portable sets (4 heads), 5 little led lights panel and 4 big studio strobes are my studio and location light equipment.
I also use a Fuji X100 that I take with me when I take a walk to shoot some street photography.
As you can notice I’m a videogame / Scifi Movie / Comic addicted. All around the office you can see an Xbox360, PS3, PS2, PS Vita, Wii, Gamecube, 3DS and many more… (also a lot of retrocomputers but they are in the Studio garage).
