We have said it time and again, the gear in your bag will not make you a better photographer. But admit it, it is always intriguing to peek in the toolbox of awesome photographers.
Online magazine In My Bag give you just this, the ability to look for photographers you like and peek in their bags.
The idea is to narrow down your interests and do a drill down to a photographer (or photographers) you like. You get a bit of information about them, their social media info, short philosophy and some of their best imagery and, for the
real GAS inflicted photographers, peek at their bag.
Here is a look at the page for photographer John Wilhelm:
“Best Image” and BIO
Gear and Influence
If you are especially into gear you can also select a few photographers to compare with a KIT WARS game. While it is fun to see who can make the most amazing images with the most minimal kit, I think it can also serve as a helpful tool to decide on lenses or cameras that you want to buy. Say see what body the high end landscape photographers are using, or what is a common lens among wedding photographers.
Here is the selection screen which you can narrow down by genre (I tried landscape):
And hit the compare button based on photos I liked.
If you wanna play this kit wars game or submit your own bag head over to In My Bag magazin.
