Packing – Priorities

Anytime I decide to take a trip.. day trip or longer to a new city, my first thought is “Hmmm..what cameras do I want to take?” The basic bag, sure, but what extras do I need?

Of course that depends on what I plan to shoot.. and when..

Cloudy? Bright sunny mid-day? Low light?

Will I be shooting architecture, weird stuff (always have time for door shots) or people on the street?

Okay.. probably all of the above.. so let’s just pack the standard gear.

1st in the bag, as always, my go to camera..Nikon D3200 w/16-85mm attached..

Since I hate to change lenses, next in is the D40 with a 35mm prime..

And because change is sometimes necessary, extra lenses – 10-20mm macro wide angle and a 55-300 mm zoom..
