In a Hobbyist’s Photography Bag

Often when I read about photographers and what they have in their camera bag, it is usually a professional photographer (someone who actually makes money off their photos). Well, I am not making money off my photos so I would not consider myself a professional. My budget is far less and I find it harder to justify spending money on photography. In thinking about this, I realize that my perspective is different. So what does this intermediate hobbyist photographer have in their bag? Well here you go.

  1.       Nikon D3000
  2.       Nikkor 50 mm f/1.8 lens
  3.       Nikon 18 – 55 mm f/3.5-5.6
  4.       Nikon 55 – 200 mm f/4-5.6
  5.       Amazon Wireless remote
  6.       Aperlite Off camera flash
  7.       Tripod (not actually in my bag but I do use it)
  8.       Mini soft box for my flash

My favorite lens of the three I have is the 50 mm. It allows me to have beautiful bokeh, which I love and it allows me to get more light into my photos. Because I enjoy the low aperture on my 50 mm so much, now I want a wider-angle lens and a macro lens with small apertures as well.
