Besides a camera, lenses, and other photographic paraphernalia, there are a few things worth having in your photo bag.
Mainly, I do photography for fun, and I like experimenting with random stuff to get unusual effects in my photos. For my birthday last year, a got a brilliant shiny cosmetic purse from a friend. It instantly became my favorite traveling companion, but I also immediately saw the potential for using it in my photos.
There have been a few occasions this year that I have used this little purse for photography, combining it with the LED flashlight on my smartphone. And I must say: I’m surprised by the funky lighting effects you can achieve with just two everyday items!
You can’t go more than one or two clicks online without seeing something related to Star Wars. And today, we’re contributing even more to that trend with an introduction to two of the most stylized camera bags we’ve ever seen.
Here is a fun challenge for everyone who considers themselves a Gear Guru.
A while back we interviewed fashion and Urbex photographer Rebecca Litchfield and it was one of the most popular interviews that we ever had. While Rebecca shared some of the gear she was using regularly, she was recently interviewed by In My Bag and shared her entire kit (seen photo above).
Now comes the challenge, in the comment below name As many pieces of gear as you can identify without looking at previous comments. As an (obvious) hint, Rebecca shoots Canon ;)
Are you an “I love to carry stuff with ease” (AKA comfort carry) kind of photographer or a “I love access to my lenses” (AKA easy access) kind of photographer?
The comfort carry kinda photographers tend to take backpacks that have back systems, while the easy access types go for pouches and sling bags.
When I got the Rotation360 for review I was happy to see that you can have both comfort and access in the same system. Read on for my full review.
