Being simple, I will be using only one camera/lens combination.

I want to see how far I can go with this combination:

Body:  Canon EOS 5D Mark II

Lens:  Canon 100-400mm IS II USM

Filters:  HOYA HD3 UV

Promaster Digital HGX CPL

I will not be using a tripod or photoshop.

Wish me luck.

p.s. the masthead photo and this photo were taken with my iPhone 4S.

p.p.s  (12/7/19) a while ago I added a new filter to my kit: B+W Stern 6X Cross Screen (otherwise known as a starlight filter)

Also I now use an iPhone 8

Update 1/2/21: I held out as long as possible, but I was missing too many shots. I bought another Canon EOS 5D Mark II body with a (relatively) low shutter count. Just to spice up the adventure I ordered off of Ebay from a Japanese merchant. Turns out it was no adventure. The body is fine. I added a lens I had lying around: Canon 24-70 f2.8 L USM w/ Promaster Digital HGX Protection filter.

Oh, and that Photoshop thing. I started using it.
