I had a week-long documentary shoot in Mindanao. Because many people are asking about the gears that I use, I decided to reveal to you guys the content of my bags.
In this 10-minute video, you will witness me unpack my bags and hear about my thoughts on the gears that I commonly use. For this particular shoot, Lightroom Corporation let me use some of their new lenses from Tamron and their tripod+slider from Benro, which I used for the first time.
I would also love to hear from you guys: “What’s in Your Bag?”
If you have questions, please comment below.
At the end of the day, though, great video comes from thinking humans, not gears. If you’re just starting out, it’s best to invest in your own skills first before buying equipment.
