My Things

My Bag

I”ve always thought it was fun to peek inside a photographer’s camera bag, so I though I would share mine. It is pretty minimal, but seems to do give me the tools I need in most situations!

When I go out with my camera I carry my LowePro bag with just the essentials. For me, the essentials are:

  • Canon EOS 5D Mk III
  • Canon 24-105mm IS zoom lens
  • Canon 70-200mm IS II zoom lens
  • Canon 24mm f1.4 lens
  • Canon 680 EX strobe
  • Rapid shoulder strap
  • Color Checker Passport
  • Extra 32GB SD Card

I might also carry a few other things outside the bag, such as:

  • Lastolite Pro Tri-Grip Reflector
  • Manfroto Tripod
  • 3 meters of diffusion material

And for off-camera flash work I will add:

  • Pocket Wizard TT1 and TT5 remote triggers
  • Lastolite Ezybox Speed-Lite

The Whole Wide World

This week was spent taking a trip down memory lane. I scanned through 14 years of home videos to put together a video piece for La Belle Tu called Whole Wide World. It is the story of “a little girl with great big plans” and set to a catchy tune by Mindy Gledhill from Triple Scoop Music.

While the existing videos provided footage for about half of the piece, the concept of a mother and daughter who capture a moment in time taking photos together required putting on a small shoot at the La Belle Tu studio.

We shot our talented cast (my wife and daughter) using a Canon 5D Mark 3 as well as a Canon Vixia HD digital video camera as they experience their photo shoot together. I must say that I have a whole new respect for filmmakers. It isn’t easy directing a movie—even one that is only 3 minutes long!

The final video tells the story of a little girl growing up fast and sharing special moments in her life with her mother.

Enjoy the Whole Wide World
