My last post was about how I unpacked my gear. Well, I’ve packed it all up again and am now in Bangkok on my way to Northern Thailand to photograph a few of the hill tribe New Year celebrations. You can refer back to older posts about how I pack my gear (and in a future post I’ll post some more photos about how I pack my camera bag, but I just can’t at the moment as I’m about ready to get on a flight to Chiang Mai.).
So what is the most important photo item that I packed besides my camera and CF cards (duh!). Drum roll — Advil! For all the gear I carry.
Aside from that, here is a short list of favorites:
Favorite camera: Canon 5D MarkII (my 1Ds Mark III is my backup)
Favorite lens: 16-35mm f/2.8 (2nd choice 24-70 f/2.8)
Favorite CF card: 16GB Sandisk Extreme IV
Favorite camera bag: Lowepro Orion AW (but I’m also taking a belt with lens pouches to go light)
Favorite new compact camera: Canon S90
Favorite flash accessory: LumiQuest FX
Favorite beer: Singha (okay, I have to edit this and be honest… Singha in Thailand but Negro Modelo in the Universe)
And here is a favorite IR image from a recent assignment in Orissa, India
