People often ask me what I take in terms of camera gear when I go out to shoot. The truth is that not everything fits in my bag and I don’t usually take every single lens when I go out for a hike.
When travelling, I think ahead about what kind of things I will be shooting and pack accordingly.
For larger cities, I pack prime lenses such as my Canon 50mm f/1.4 and 85mm f/1.2. These two lenses create beautiful bokeh for street and documentary photography. They also allow me to get a bit more creative when documenting culture and people, as they encourage me to step outside of my usual boundaries.
When photographing landscapes and nature, I like to have my wide angle 16-35mm lens as well as a 70-200mm telephoto zoom lens in my bag, especially if I’m hiking or visiting a place that I haven’t been to before.
My f-stop Kashmir UL fits all of my essentials, including my laptop if I’m going on a flight. The best part is that it’s quite light, so it doesn’t take up precious weight.
If there are any extra items that I want to take along, such as my tripod, I will either secure it onto the side of the bag when hiking or pack it into checked luggage during a flight.
