I’m winding down my vacation with a few days camping at Acadia National Park, and with the little time I have to be online, I figured I would answer a question I often receive—what’s in my camera bag.
While most of you know camera gear is really not a focus of mine, it is still critically important to success as a landscape photographer. I use what gets the job done for me, and in general I prefer top quality lenses, and as much resoltution as I can afford given I make and sell large prints. But I also enjoy smaller setups that are lighter and easier to carry, especaily in long hikes.
So for this particular 11 day trip, here;s what I packed in my GuraGear Uinta backpack:
Primary Landscape Kit
- Canon 1DS Mk III Body
- Zeiss 21mm Distagon Lens
- Canon 70–200mm L f/2.8 IS Lens
- Olympus OM-D E-M1
- Olympus 12mm f/2.8 Lens
- Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lens
- Olympus 45mm f/1.8 Lens
- Olympus 75mm f/1.8 Lens
- Manfrotto 190CF3 carbon fiber tripod
- Kirk BH3 Ballhead
- B+W Ciscular Polarizer
- B+W 6 stop ND filter
- B+W 10 stop ND Filter
- Adapter rings for filters
While this is not the most versatile setup, I chose to bring more prime lenses on this trip to challenge myself creatively and keep my decisions simpler, which is always a good thing. Not having an option means I focus on what I can work with, and that makes me look more instead of simply relying on familiar habits.
Thanks for reading and any questions whatsoever, please let me know!
