Please don't take my camera away

posted on 3rd of august, 2012

I was searching for the perfect camera bag. One that would fit ALL my gear, be easy to carry, work as carry on luggage, and not advertise that I was carrying anything worth stealing. And I didn't want to spend a fortune.

I didn't have much luck. I found some bags that were reasonably priced and sounded like they would carry my equipment safely. But I don't like messing with those velcro dividers. And most of them were clearly branded.

So, I went on a photo shoot, with my old camera bag that is still serviceable. I was getting by OK with carrying my equipment, but I was shooting outdoors, it was about 100 degrees out and keeping some cold drinks on hand seemed like a good idea.

About me

I have had a camera in my hand ever since I can remember.
