Must Have Accessories...?

Hey everyone ,

Im curious to find what everyone has to bring or loves bringing when they go out taking photos for the day or afternoon or whatever. What equipment do you love bringing with you besides your camera? Also do you bring a cup of coffee, or your mp3 player to listen to music while you shoot? Im just curious to hear your peoples photography routines .
Me myself I love to bring my ipod with me when Im taking pictures by myself. Different songs seem to set the mood so Im more open to those type of shots, I dunno if that makes sense .
Lets hear em

Very interesting question.

I usually carry a voodoo doll of Spicoli's! LOL (just kidding)

When shooting alone, even indoor, it's all about the iPod! 100% with you on that. Not used to shoot without music - and it really does set the mood for some shots.

When it comes to Cam accessories, if it's a long walk, like recently in London, I'd carry 2 additional lenses (a wide one 10x20 - and a long one 100-300) in addition to the standard lens, 18-55.

Always an extra memory card - and an extra battery, and since I'm not very friendly with big tripods (yet) I carry one mini tripod, about 5 inches tall, which helps if I need to take a night shot (and for that, I also carry the small remote, because I have extra-shaky hands!) LOL

Oh, I was supposed to carry something to clean my lenses with - but I kept using Jenn's stuff.

You can use the one of my ex

Of course, the camera, extra battery, memory cards, lens cleaning cloth, polarizing filter, Pod (it's like a bean bag with a camera mount on it) clear plastic bag, to slip the camera in if the weather is a little wet.. rubber band to fasten it around the lens... a bottle of water, and sunscreen...... no tunes for me when I am out shooting, I like to hear the sounds of nature..

Really depends on where I'm going and how preplanned it is. If it's just a walk around town shooting architecture and people thing, it's just a camera and usually a 24-70 or 24-105 lens. Unless it's midday summertime, I don't bother with filters. I usually have a small camera bag just in case it starts raining (which it does a lot in the UK). My Canon 5D is my main camera and I have a battery grip on it which fits two batteries. It won't run out on most any day walkaround. I also have a 4gb memory card in it, so unless I go crazy, I ain't running out of memory.

If it's a planned trek outside of the local fields, I have a backpack to fit more gear like filters, another body and lenses, shutter release, extra batteries, etc, and extra clothing (especially a waterproof), and I strap my tripod to the pack. Other handy stuff for treks are gators (helps keep legs dry and helps with the stickery bushes like gorse), black bin liners to sit or kneel on when it's wet or to just put stuff in to keep dry, and a handheld GPS for following map coordinates (or just a compass). I haven't gotten to do as much trekking as I would like, but plan to do a lot more.

The mp3 accessory must be a younger thing, lol. I like to hear the wind, or whatever else is going on around me. I dig silence My wife, who's 18 years younger than me skis with her ipod. I like the sound of the snow under my skis! Just an aside, I was near the top of Crested Butte trying to raise her on a walkie talkie lower on the mountain. She never heard me because of the damn ipod
Cheers,
Bruce

Usually the dog, I feel guilty if I leave him behind. Although he does tend to chase any animals or birds ! My phone has to come as well. I usually go out when my children are at school so need to be in touch.

I just love music and photography, so why not have them together right ? Yeah it depends what type of mood Im in or what Im doing. Sometimes I have to have quiet. But most of the time I just like listening to some music to set the mood for the type of shot Im looking for. As for the ipod on the ski hill, Id have to agree with your wife on that one I snowboard and love having my ipod with my when riding.

I haven't ever gone out with the MP3 player - must try that sometime, but mostly I think I prefer the quiet . .

In terms of what I can't cope without, it's got to be the tripod and cable release!

Looking forward to the summer when I can get the IR filter out again though!!!
