Beijing at it’s best was, whenever the wind blew away the smog leaving crystal blue skies and wispy clouds! Digital travel photography whilst being in China was awesome. As with any major city, you’re never alone as a photographer. It’s even more so the case when you’re visiting the hot tourists spots where everyone goes to get those famous shots.
I’ve included my most used and carried photography gear in this list and pictured. Out of the four lenses I carry, they can probably be ranked in the following order (number 1 being the most used)
1) Nikkor 14-24mm f2.8
2) Nikkor 50mm f1.4
3) Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8
4) Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8
However most of the pictures I publish online come from the 14-24mm and 24-70mm.

By focussing on architectural photography, specifically church photography I have found four main factors that have contributed to improving my photography. They have also elicited positive feelings I hadn’t expected and motivated me to continue photographing more churches and cathedrals.
