So Jamie....What's in your bag?

I've been seeing more and more posts from photographers showing what they are carrying, and I have been receiving requests for a "what's in your bag?" post. So I figured since I have some free time this evening I will do exactly that. And without any further introduction I give you....

The top bag goes with me everyday to my day job, to the store, to take the to school and home...EVERYWHERE. You never know what you may see so be prepared!

The second bag is actually what I last used in it. I was out shooting sunrise wildflower scenes with that bag.

Before I go though I want to invite you to ad a link to YOUR bag! I am always curious to see how other people prepare to go out shooting.

Take care,
