Capture precious moments and memories on the go with these 5 photography essentials.
1. Camera bag
Having a camera bag packed and ready with your photography essentials will go a long way to making sure you don’t forget anything. It makes all your equipment easy to carry and protects your gear rolling around and scratching each other.
Pre-packed camera bags are also useful for unexpected trips with potential photo opportunities. Instead of scrambling to get everything together at the last minute, or foregoing your camera altogether, you’ll have a kit ready to go.
A tripod is useful for timed photos, time-lapse photography and making sure your camera stays steady. There are a lot of things you can do with tripods, but they are most useful for their balance. If you don’t want to carry around a bulky tripod, you can get a small retractable one that will do the trick.
3. Battery or charger
Have an extra battery to make sure your camera is ready to take photos whenever a good opportunity pops up. There is nothing more disheartening than passing on potential shots because your battery is low and you want to save it for later. As a photographer, this mindset is essentially trading good photo opportunities now for potential better ones later, and it doesn’t always work out to your benefit.
4. Extra memory card
It’s easy to take great photos when you don’t have to be conservative with space. Point and shoot as many pictures as you want to review and edit later. If your memory card fills up, you’ll have to spend precious time looking through your camera and deleting photos from there. Taking an extra memory card will allow you to take more photos with more time.
5. Rain cover
This is convenient to have and an absolute photography essential when it starts to rain. Most camera equipment cannot get wet, so having a rain cover allows you to continue taking photos while keeping your valuable equipment safe, dry and functional.
