What's in my Bag? - Bloom Photography and Design

Day 03| What's in my Bag?


20 March 2020

This will be the first in a series of "workshop" type posts. 


I love my camera bag, I just need to give it a shout out before we start. It stores all my lens and backup camera with ease, and it still has room to hold lollipops, batteries, extension tubes, and other randomness. It's the Evermore from House of Flynn. I seriously love it. It also converts from a shoulder bag to a backpack to make my life easier when I am on the go. 

So what is in my bag? My main camera is a Nikon D5, my baby. You can also see me using my backup camera a Nikon D700. But just because I shoot with Nikon doesn't mean you can't shoot with something else, I can also get you guys help with Canon's, etc.  My camera is a full frame camera, meaning my camera's sensor is the same size as a 35mm frame. Your camera could also be a crop-sensor  camera, which means any sensor smaller than a full frame. 




As far as lenses go, I have had a while to collect them (almost 20 years) so I have a good bit. My go to lens, however, is a Nikon 50mm 1.8 (a), it's the lens that is usually on my camera from cake smashes to family shoots. Sometimes I may want to get a bit of a wider view, such as for newborn lifestyle shoots, in this case I use a Nikon 35mm 1.8 (b). My second go to lens is a Nikon 105mm 1.4, this gives me the creamy, bokeh-ey backgrounds in portraits. (c).  I have a Nikon 14mm 2.8 for when I want a super-wide view (d). I have one Nikon 85mm 2.8, but no example of it. Last but not least a Nikon 70-300mm 4-5.6 for when I want a zoomed in view, also with no examples. 

What else is in my bag? I have a flash, a Nikon SB-800 at the moment. I have an Altura cleaning kit. The last few things in my bag are things such as batteries, business cards, flashcards, lollipops, and clipboards.Now I need to know what you guys are working with? Do you use Nikon or Canon or something else? What kind of lenses do you own?
