What's In My Photography Bag

Honestly, I don't have a ton of gear. But I know the gear that I have really well and since I mostly photograph people, I don't feel a need to have a ton of things on hand. In case you were wondering what I've got in my photo bag, here's the list!

I shoot with a Nikon D610. It's a full frame camera. You may not know what that means. I didn't for a long time. I had no idea what a different a full frame versus a crop sensor would make! I have loved this camera and don't necessarily plan on upgrading anytime soon. It certainly does the jobs I need it to.

I own a Nikon 50mm 1.4 lens as well as a Sigma 35mm 1.4 lens that basically never leaves my camera body. I love the depth of field I get with these lenses, but the wide angle is so helpful with large groups and little kids. The only downside is that they don't zoom. So when I'm taking photos and want a close up and then a further back shot, I've got to move my feet a lot more. :) But I've managed to make it work out quite nicely so far, and I don't mind the extra steps that my fitbit can count.

I use a spider holster which fits around my waist to hold my camera. It has been one of the best purchases I've ever made. It keeps my hands free so I can help with the bride's dress, fix someone's hair or play with the little kids for a second without worrying about my camera swinging around my neck and smacking any little child in the face as I bend down to help them. If you're a photographer and you're still using a neck strap, I highly recommend this item. It has saved my neck and upper back from pain as well!!

I use lightroom for the majority of my editing with photoshop to do any extra, more involved things. I recently got a video light that I use at wedding receptions when the lighting is not so great. I have a flash as well, but don't use that as often as I used to. Not to say it doesn't have it's place, it's just not my first preference.
