What's in my camera bag, you ask? Well, it changes based on the shoot, but these are things that I always keep handy.
In place of my usual Nikon D750 (used to take these instead), I have the Nikon EM. This is one of my favorite film cameras and it is so easy to use! I often use my 50mm or 35mm (used to take this) and have shown a 70-200mm. I generally keep the 35 or 50 on my camera to save space in my bag and then have the big guy when I need it. Some of the things that I add to the bag include string lights for bokeh, smoke bombs, scissors for loose strings, a mini reflector, and a bag of cords for my camera.
I also keep some aspirin or ibuprofen in my bag because some shoots can be long and the long lens is heavy on my wrist. Tissues are a very important accessory. If I am shooting a proposal and there are tears, I got you. If it's cold and your nose is runny, I got you. If you have a little sweat on your face, I definitely got you (sometimes I even carry blotting papers). Since the covid, I have been keeping a mask in my bag for safety.
My actual camera bag is a whole story in itself. Come back soon to learn how I took an old bag and made it perfect!
