What’s In My Camera Bag?

One question that a lot of photographers get asked is what kind of equipment do you use?  Well, I’m not much of a writer, but I’ll give it a shot.  I know I’ll be leaving a lot of things out but here is the skinny on what’s in my camera bag.  First off, what I carry on a daily basis really depends on the project at hand!  For example, I would pack my gear differently when I’m doing a portrait session than if I were shooting a wedding!

I always have used Nikon cameras and lenses!  They are an amazing tool for me and I’m very familiar with their options and abilities.  My gear allows me the full creative control that I require when I work.  There are so many factors to making a great images from the equipment you use, compositions on every shot, depth of field, and lighting.
