When we are out for a shoot or traveling there are few things that come in real handy. For example, a landscape photographer can not leave his/her house without a tripod. It is absolutely essential for taking those steady, crisp and beautiful landscapes. Over the years, we learn to carry certain things along with us to make our lives easier. Below is a list of camera gear that every one needs in their bag. I have also mentioned the brand that I like and provided the link besides the products so that you can purchase the products if you want to.
Here are 7 essential photography supplies that we recommend:-
1. Camera Bag
Yes, without a bag the rest of the gear is left unprotected. Investing in a good Camera bay is a good idea. Especially if you are a travel photographer, a camera bag will protect your expensive gear as they are tough and designed to do so.
One of the first things that you should have in your arsenal is a good tripod. As a serious photographer, you need to produce steady and leveled shots. No body is going to hire you if your shots are not leveled. Secondly, if you are shooting in low light or at slower shutter speed you would need to have a tripod. Moving camera will simply not give the shots that you were hoping for. In addition, if you are a blogger you would need to be in the front of the camera and tripod will help you immensely with that
If you are into shooting videos, you might use up a lot of space when you are shooting videos. So carrying extra memory cards is a good idea. You could have an 32gb and 64gb sd cards
6. Wire organizer
My life is filled with wires these days usb cables, charger cables and on top of that we keep needing smaller items like sd cards, card adaptors etc. A great way to organize is to use a wire organizer. Everything goes in these tiny compartments and all are neatly organized for whenever you need them.
If you are a blogger then you need a good mic set up. It provides high quality sound and can be connected through a 3.5 mm jack on the camera. I particularly like this rode videomic shoot gun mic as it gives a very crisp and clear sound.
