I mean business!
Hiding my camera in a pretty bag.
My Lowepro Runner 450AW is my go to place. It keeps everything nice and safe and I know it has everything in there including the kitchen sink.
My JoJo Totes Abby Black is my event bag or day trip out with Jack. It’s for when I know my phone won’t cut it but I don’t want or need to take everything out with me. It’s great for friends parties or day trips out.
Unfortunately, this one has been discontinued, however there are some lovely other ones like this Betsy one.
So what’s in my bag?
What’s in a photographer’s bag seems to be the number one question asked! So here it goes.
I actually have three now, and I still use all three of them. I know, but you don’t always want to carry the biggest, heaviest, most expensive one around. The important thing is how you use your camera. But if you’re struggling to work out with one you want start with the an entry level one Canon 200D. A lovely starter camera for someone starting out.
My 24-70mm on crop sensor.
I love this lens
I use my Tamron for macro work.
A beautiful lens and a life saver for outside.
My most affordable lens out there. Starting from £100 new.
A nice piece of kit for doing macro work.
An absolute must for keeping the camera steady.
Yougnuo Speedlite YN560 + TX
A surprisingly lovely flash, that I wouldn’t be without.
You should always keep spare batteries, you never now when you’ll need one.
It’s always worth spending that little bit more on good memory cards. I love my SD Extreme Pro cards.
If I could only have one accessory, I’d buy this. It’s life changing from an editing point of view.
What else are you going to use or storing, editing and generally having fun.
Most Used Item in my bag?
Is my f2.8 24-70mm Lens. I love this for using indoors with toddlers and family portraits. It’s great for when there’s limited space.
Least used item in my bag?
My flash. It’s a very reasonable flash and I’ve started using it in a varitey of ways, but I always prefer to use natural lighting where possible. I’m sorry I just do.
Why the photographer is more important than the camera.
