What’s in My Camera Bag

Happy Tuesday, friends!!  Two years ago, I started a feature called Photo 101 where we talked all things photography… You ladies continue to have lots of questions about this subject, so today I am answering about what is my camera bag and how I started in this business all those years ago!

How it all started!

This little business, honestly, just began as a hobby, that turned into much, much more.  I have a degree in Business and worked in non-profit development prior to this business taking off all those years ago. This year, we are celebrating being in business for 14 years. What a blessing.:)

What’s in my Camera Bag

Why is it so fun to peek inside someone else’s bag? I am super excited to share what it’s inside my camera bag! Also, because you have asked, I am sharing the camera that I started out with, the one I bought when I wanted to upgrade several years ago, and the one that is next on my list.  Woohoo!

Camera Bag: Kelly Moore Bag

I just love this bag so much!   It’s pretty, and super functional with several pockets on the inside!

I always put my keys and phone in the front pockets, and it even fits my MacBook Pro as well!  Win-Win!  Now, let’s check out what’s actually IN my camera bag!

Canon Rebel: My first DSLR and a great Entry Level option!

This camera is an excellent option if you are interested in a beginner DSLR!   This was my first camera to learn photography on!

It is a intuitive camera and great for snapping great shots of your kids. Also, this camera is super popular, so there are tons of tutorials on the internet and youtube!  My sweet kiddos spent a lot of time in front of this little camera! :).

Nikon D750: Great Mid-Level Camera

So, a few years after I bought my first camera, I decided to invest is a more Complex camera! I bought a version of this camera all those years ago, and it is still hanging tough today!  It’s a great option if you are considering diving a little deeper into the technical side of shooting!  Once you really get the hang of shooting manual, many photographers find themselves wanting a slightly more sophisticated camera. This for the bill perfectly!

This was the perfect camera to build a business with and great in all sorts of shooting conditions!

Nikon D850

So, I had this camera on back order when it first came out and had the HARDEST time getting my hands on one.   I took that a sign that the timing wasn’t right for such a big investment and took my name off the list for this one, but it’ll be the next big purchase that I make for my business.  I have heard nothing but amazing reviews about this one!

My favorite lenses

Wondering what lenses I carry around? My favorite lenses are this 50 mm lens…

and this versatile zoom lens.  I tend to use this one most for my portrait photography!   I like to be able to zoom when photographing small kids and this 2.8 aperture is pretty much perfect for a pretty portrait look. πŸ™‚

  1. Curious as to why you switched from Canon to Nikon? I’ve thought about making the switch if/when I decide to upgrade (I’ve had a Rebel for 10 years), but hesitate because I’d have to replace all my lenses (I have invested in Canon 50mm, a wide angle lens, and a non-basic telephoto). Any advice is appreciated – thanks!

    • I think that canon and Nikon are both great. When I bought my current camera, Nikon was slightly ahead on their technology so I switched over. I don’t think you can wrong with either brand! πŸ™‚ There is a slight learning curve when switching brands and also upgrading to a more complex camera so maybe sticking with canon is your best bet. πŸ™‚
