Packing your bag for a trip and can’t think of what you’re going to actually need? You’ll want to pack lightly while still bringing your travel essentials so we figured we would help you out. Here’s a list of all the things we find essential to bring with us on our photography adventures!
This should go without saying, but it is the first and most important. You’ll need a durable bag, big enough in size to store all of your gear, but small enough so that you can carry it with you along your journey to wherever life takes you. Some great camera bag options include Herschel Supply backpacks, Think Tank bags, or the Peak Design messenger bags.
A camera is always necessary if you are a photographer, especially when traveling to a new location to shoot. Make sure you have high quality camera with manual controls and adjustable aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. This will ensure your ability to make the perfect adjustments to get the most clear shots wherever you are.
One Short Prime Lens (at least)
A short, prime lens is always a good option to have when photographing. Adjusting the aperture and ISO rather than the zoom like in a normal lens will help to capture sharper images with less vignetting and distortion. Perfect for portraits, prime lenses focus on the subject and blur the background. Some prime lenses that are notable are the Canon EF 50mm lens and the Nikon NIKKOR 50 mm lens.
One Wide Angle Lens (at least)
You’ll also want at least one wide angle lens with you while traveling, especially if you’ll be camping or visiting areas with vast amounts of land and open scenery. Some great wide angle lenses to consider are the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm lens or the Canon EF 24-70mm zoom lens.
