Whats in my bag
This assignment required me to travel to New York and this is what what I brought and how I packed.
In my Pelican Case 1510(fits in overheads bin on airplanes)
It carried a Canon 5D Mark 111 body with battery grip, a Sigma 50mm 2.8, a Canon 85mm 1.2, a Canon 24-70mm 2.8, a Canon 70-200mm 2.8, a Sekonic light meter for Elinchrom, El-Skyport for Canon (it lets you adjust the power of the strobes from the camera) and a color checker Passport for grey card.
In my Pelican Case 1610(must be checked so get airport approved locks)
It contained 2 Elinchrom Qudra 400 ws power pack’s with pro heads, (2) diffuser’s, (2) 2″ reflector’s, (2) 4″ reflector’s, Qudra reflector adaptor, impact rid set(includes 10′, 20, 30′, 40′ grids), Elinchrom D-lite RX 4 head with 6″ reflector.
And last but not least my Samsonite travel backpack with laptop sleeve.
A Macbook pro, tether cords, a LaCie 1TB Rugged Mini Portable Hard Drive, my cubs hat from game six of the 2016 NLCS verse the Dodgers in which the Cubs won 5-0 which allowed them to advance on to and win the World Series and my two note books for lighting and location notes. Luckily for me on this one the client had access to lighting stand’s and a 6′ Elichrom octabank light shaper so I didn’t have to travel with a stand bag.
Here are a few final edits from the shoot.
We even had enough time to hit Time Square and grab a few cool environmental captures.
