What I Bring on a Photo Shoot

November 11, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I love shooting sunsets and sunrises. Because these times of day are lacking in light it is imperative that I have a tripod

This is what I use along with the ball head:

Manfrotto 3001-PRO TRIPOD and a Manfrotto 322RC2 GRIP ACTION BALL HEAD





I carried this tripod with me all the time and man it’s heavy and awkward.  Not a fun thing to do and I had this tripod for almost ten years.  I finally broke down last year and found a padded case to put the tripod in.  The Giottos AA1252 Padded Tripod Case.  The padded case makes using the tripod a pleasure now.  I don’t know why I waited so long to purchase one.  The case even has a shoulder strap so I can carry the tripod over my shoulder.  Anyone who has a tripod (and EVERYONE SHOULD own one.) should also have a carrying case.  


Speaking of cases I have a LowPro Slngshot 302.  

You can click the link above to see the bag’s description.  I now have two lenses:

--A Canon Zoom Wide Angle-Telephoto EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Autofocus Lens
--A Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM

Again, you can click the link above.


The 10-18mm is the lens I use 90% of the time.  I LOVE this lens.  I am mostly a landscape photographer and because of this I don’t really have a need for a telephoto lens.  I’ve considered selling the 24-70mm lens however when I do portrait work, it winds up being the lens I use.


How about other photographers?  What’s in your bag?


In the meantime:

Focus on what’s ahead of you.
