What is in the bag.

NOTE: This is no longer my current setup. To see the new setup, click here.

My equipment is the most basic setup you can get away with for nature and portrait photography. However, as you can see in my portfolio, it gets some pretty decent pictures.

So, here is my bag. This is my travel bag. I use it as carry-on when on a plane.

When I am on a nature trip, I normally hand-carry my 1D Mark II with the Bigma attached, plus I have a small sling-bag with an additional lens, additional batteries, a CPL filter, and some lens cleaner. As you can see, I like to travel light. If the trip is a family trip, I will carry my 1D Mark II with a 24-70 f/2.8 and a flash attached, and the Bigma in the sling-bag. That’s it.

Anyways, back to the airline carry-on travel bag. The bag is a Bilora Eurostar “Roma” camera backpack, and it holds all the necessary equipment - with room to spare. As shown, it can hold sufficient equipment to cover most situations, i.e. nature photography, touristy photos and portrait/family photos.
