What I Take When I Go Out with My Camera

February 16, 2018  •  1 Comment

Here’s a riff on the What’s in my Camera Bag question.  What I take is a BIT different because there are some things that may NOT be in my bag that I take anyway.  So what do I take?

My Three lenses
The Canon Speedlite 420EX Flash
My Canon EOS 40D
Various Filters

CF Card Reader






Things not DIRECTLY Photo related:
Depending on how far I travel, if out of state for an extended time:
My Macbook Air 13 inch.

My G-Technology G-DRIVE mobile USB Portable 2TB hard drive.


These two devices travel with me because I use them to edit and store my photos.  When I travel outside Connecticut for an extended period, I use my messenger bag with a photo insert.  That way I’m able to use JUST ONE bag and I can keep my Macbook and my external hard drive with all of my photography equipment together.  I’d been looking for a messenger type bag so I could use it to keep my computer and photography equipment in the same bag.  But when I found the insert, I opted to go that way as it was less expensive.


Now that I have reacquired my Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 is usm telephoto zoom lens, my Manfrotto tripod and Manfrotto tripod head will be another companion I travel with.  Now I’m even happier I have a Giottos AA1252 Padded Tripod Case Medium 4.5x28-Inch.  Having this case, makes carrying my tripod so much easier.


So what do you bring when you go on photography shoot?


In the meantime:
Focus on what's ahead of you.

Love how your brought your tripod in, as an afterthought. I was wondering why that wasn't in the top list.
