Trekking & Photography Tip # 2 - Two essential but oft-forgotten items

On a trek, photography does not stop when the sun goes down. Sunsets, star trails, moonlit mountains, a lit up tents often make the best subjects for outdoor photography. Nevertheless, in order to take such photographs, a trekker needs to be prepared with the right photo gear and the right gear for the photographer. Normally, we spend a lot of time fretting over our photo gear but we forget to pack the right gear for the photographer.

The Road To A Better Outdoor Photographer

What we are trying to emphasise is that gear has little impact on your photography so put the “magical” thinking out of your mind. What we recommend instead is to pick one phone, point & shoot or a camera and lens that you own or you can beg, borrow or scrounge and forget about buying new gear for the next year. Stop surfing to gear review sites and internet forums and instead spend that time on taking photographs.

What’s in our camera bag?

A lot of readers have asked us to share our photo gear and what we carry in our camera bags. So we decided to throw open our camera bag to our readers and explain why we own, what we own. 

Warning! This article may contain a lot of photography jargon, you have been warned.
