One of the first things I do before going on a trip is to figure out what bag (or two) I’m going to use, and what stuff I’m going to bring. There’s a lot to consider when packing - like what’s the weather going to be like, do I need shoes that can get muddy or are we going to a fancy dinner and I need to look nice…you know, the usual questions one might ask. Not to mention, I’m always wondering what camera gear can I bring.
1. The Bag
So first things first. I recently tested out a new solution for bringing all of my camera gear out with me. I converted Frost River’s River Bank Tackle Box into my camera bag, and let me confirm friends, it holds everything.
This bag was an amazing fit for me because of all of the dividers and pockets it has! It’s important to keep everything organized and separated so that you don’t damage your fragile gear.
I converted this soft-sided tackle box into a camera bag by simply adding small wash cloths for some extra padding to protect the body of my camera. Viola!
And as an added bonus, I can always just remove the inner panel and use as a water resistant duffle if I don't need to bring all of my gear with me.
