What's in my Camera Bag?

March 02, 2019  •  2 Comments

I often get asked these questions...

  • What kind of camera do you use?  
  • What type of lenses do you use?  
  • Do you ever use flash?  

So today I'm sharing what's in my camera bag(s)

I actually have several camera bags.  The biggest camera bag I own is my House of Flynn Evermore.   It can hold a lot of gear as it is a pretty roomy bag and super cute, too! 

I also have a Lowepro Passport Sling DSLR Camera Bag that I wear during my shoots.  It's lightweight and can hold a couple of lenses in case I need to switch out mid-session.  Not very cute but REALLY functional.

 

I've been strictly a Canon girl up until recently and I own two Canon cameras. The Canon 5D Mark IV DSLR Camera and the Canon 7D Mark II DSLR Camera.  A few months ago, I purchased the Sony A7iii.  It has become my main camera for portraits.  I now use the Mark IV for video and the 7D is my backup camera.

 

These are the lenses that I own:

  • Sigma Art 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Lens
  • Sigma Art85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens
  • Sigma Art 50mm F1.4 Art DG HSM Lens
  • Canon EF 200mm f/2L IS Telephoto Lens
  • Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM Wide Angle Lens
  • Sigma 15mm f/2.8 EX DG Fisheye Lens

My favorite lens that I own and the one I use most often is my Sigma Art 135mm.   I used to own the Canon version of this lens but it was too soft for me.  I sold it and bought the Sigma and have been very happy with it.  It's super sharp and the bokeh is amazing.  I love the look of the Canon 200mm but it is very impractical and so heavy!  I use it occasionally if I have only one subject or possibly two.   I find myself reaching for my 135mm much more often.  Lately, I have been enjoying my 50mm for family shoots to capture more of that lifestyle feeling.

 

Other things in my bag...

I have just discovered the Hoodman memory cards and they have a very good reputation for being the most reliable memory cards on the market.  They are more expensive but I don't mind paying for the higher quality.  If you've ever had a memory card corrupt, then you know where I'm coming from!  

 

I do own the off-camera flash setup listed above but I honestly rarely use it.  Every now and then I will use it during a senior session.  I would like to use it more but it doesn't come second nature to me yet.

 

And that's what in my bag!  I hope I answered all of your questions but, if not, feel free to shoot me an email.

Hi!! Just wondering you say you use sigma and canon lenses with the Sony body, do you need an adapter for each lens? Or is there a universal adapter??

Do you like the Sony better for portraits than the Canon 5D 1V. If so can.I ask you why. I have the Canon 5d mark iv but really are not that happy with the colour nor skin tones. I have had all the 5ds so this one is causing me problems.
