Four Tips on Traveling Light as a Photographer

Before you know it, vacation time will be here. You'll want to capture lots of photos to document your experiences. It’s usually a good idea to have a bag in which to carry your camera and associated gear. But you won't want to pack too much, lest your shoulders and back start to hurt from carrying around lots of gear for long periods.

If you're planning on traveling soon, here are a few tips on how to keep your bag light.

Photography: It Is—and Isn’t—About the Gear

I'd been saving for months and months, which seemed like a lifetime, and I didn’t even have a driver’s license yet. I’d given my savings to my dad to pick it up early that day. I sat in class, and the clock seemed to be going in reverse. I had a volleyball tournament after school, but I hoped my dad would show up before the whistle. The match started, then the second game, and then the third, yet I didn’t see him. Then, in the fourth game I saw him come in with a brown paper bag, and take a seat next to Sharon. That just killed me—not sitting next to Sharon—but knowing that in that bag was basically my life's savings. Wouldn’t you know it? We tied up the match and went into overtime. That I was spiking with all my might goes without saying. Finally, with the last serve, an ace, the match was over, and before anything else, I ran over to the bleachers. He handed me the paper bag with a big smile. I opened it, and inside I saw that brand new Minolta 200 f4 lens I’d been saving so long for. I was in love!

Selecting a Point of View

Ansel Adams once remarked that a good photograph is knowing where to stand. Where we stand—or kneel, sit, or lie—determines the camera’s point of view.

The seemingly mundane task of selecting a point of view is one of the most creative aspects of photography. When the camera’s position changes, the relationships of the visual elements in the viewfinder are rearranged. We can redesign the world as the camera sees it, simply by moving.

We Ask Photographers: What's Your Go To Lens and Camera?

While a photographer's vision comes first, there are many creatives that prefer to just use one camera and one lens. The reason for this varies greatly: maybe the combo helps them get most of their work done, or maybe they love the way the two work together. We recently talked to various photographers asking them what their go-to lens and camera are.

And the answers range across the entire spectrum.

One Light at a Time: Lighting and Creating a Scene

Have you ever looked at photographs and wondered how they were lit? Strobist diagrams can help after the fact, but what about before: how do you know how to get the look you want? Consider a cinematography technique: lighting your scene one light at a time.
