What’s in My Camera Bag?

I have received a few requests to describe what I have in my camera bag.

So much of it depends on what I will photograph that day- headshots, an event, portraits.

One area I will not waver on is the use of the best camera and lenses.  The Canon L lens series do make a huge difference to image quality.  There is no substitution.  For example, there is about $1200 difference between the 50mm 1.2 and 1.8.  While the extra light I can get from the 1.2 is amazing, it is the the sharpness, contrast, and saturation qualities the 1.2 delivers that is spectacular and noticeable.

How much do they each cost?  An average L lens is $1500 in cost.
