As a traveler, I feel like I have a closer relationship with my camera bag than I do with my purse. It isn’t very effective for me to carry a purse and my camera bag when I am out sightseeing. I needed a bag that can hold everything from my camera gear to some makeup all while not being bulky or cumbersome. Never fear it can be done! Here is my camera bag and the contents that keep me going.
Lowepro Passport Sling III
After trying many bags, this bag has become my newest favorite! It is shaped to curve around the body so it stays close to your person. Three exterior pockets to keep small items in that you want close at hand. I like to keep my lipgloss/chapstick, metro map, and other little things that if they fall out or get taken I am not too worried about it. The interior is very functional and has a few custom options depending on the user. The zippered back area that expands the storage area if you need a little extra room is a fantastic feature. The padded camera caddy helps keep gear in place and prevents sliding and damage while you are walking. There is even a convenient interior pocket for your tablet.
Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera
Of course, the camera bag is going to have a camera. To be honest, I love my Nikon. Everyone has their favorite brand for one reason or another. I started with a Nikon because it was probably on sale when I got my first DSLR and I have continued to always go with that brand when it has been time to upgrade.
Small Makeup Bag
A girl can’t leave without having a few basics with her…A small zippered bag with lip gloss, liquid eyeliner, brow pencil, concealer and mascara. Ya know…just in case…
I didn’t really want to break the little odds and ends each into their own. These are the little things that could possibly make or break your day!
-Extra batteries, lens filters (I always have a polarized filter handy), extra memory card, notepad with paper to write details or names of a photo
So there you have it…my camera bag! I really don’t carry a whole lot, but usually by the end of the day I will have quite the collection. I usually end up with empty water bottles, receipts, transportation passes, maps…the list just goes on and on with the random things I collect when I’m out for the day. One time I even had an empty beer growler during a festival.
What the strangest thing you have ended up with in your camera bag?
