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.
Thanks for sharing Serena! Always love to hear what specific gear other pros are using. And since your work in particular is among the best in the world today, it’s especially great to see exactly what you pack.
