I don’t know about other folks, but I absolutely love to see what other photographers carry with them, particularly their daily walkabout gear. I know on assignment, a lot more gear may be required, like a second body just in case the working horse camera goes kaput, extra lenses, a tether cable, a laptop, and so on.
I’ve pared down to one or two cameras when I head out for personal shoots or vacations. Actually, I still find it quite difficult to not take 3 or more cameras with me, but since we’ve decided to travel light with just carry-ons, I’ve learned to only take 2 cameras, maximum.
In the photo below are the cameras and essentials from our last weekend trip. I’m carrying two cameras, not super heavy ones, but my poor shoulder and back still take a beating at the end of a long day. I’m trying to learn to go light.
My goal is to only carry one camera for our next weekend getaway.
