I thought that for today’s post that I would do something a little different. Today, I am going to talk about a new passion that we have developed recently.
First, let me set the scene with this… I used to be a massive sneaker head! I was literally obsessed. I would spend hours every day searching through eBay and online sneaker sale sites looking to see if I could snap up a bargain pair. I would be constantly scrolling through forums and websites dedicated to sneakers, checking up on the latest and upcoming releases. I would even buy monthly magazines dedicated exclusively to sneakers.
I had over 40 pairs that I would wear on rotation but I was never satisfied with the collection I had, constantly wanting to buy more and more and more… It is pretty obvious that I had a passion for sneakers.
Now while I still love sneakers and the joy that comes with purchasing a new pair, the simple fact is that this has taken a back seat to my newest passion.
My new passion for photography and camera gear!
As you would already know from previous blog posts, we recently bought a new camera. A new camera to take the photos we were wanting to take of Jesse and also for use with our Not So Secret Life Of Us project.
Due to the fact that we only had some simple point and click cameras, we were in desperate need of one that took high quality shots of Jesse that were worthy of framing and hanging on our walls. And we finally got it.
But like all new passions, it hasn’t stopped there… We now find ourselves constantly wanting to add to our ‘camera bag’. Whether it’s accessories for our new camera, or other equipment that we can utilise for our future photos and videos.
It’s so bad now, that I can’t walk past a camera shop without going in and checking out all their merchandise… cameras and all! But all that said, we absolutely love it. Our new passion is one that we both get to enjoy and be a part of.
So in honour of our new passion, I thought that it would be a good opportunity to share what is in our camera bag. While it isn’t much at the moment, this is only the beginning to a new passion that I’m sure will see our camera bag expand to something much… much more.
Our current camera bag consists of:
- Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II camera
- Olympus lens kit (incl. 14-42mm lens, 45mm portrait lens and 40-150mm lens)
- Sony Cybershot WX300 camera
- Sony Cybershot TX10 waterproof camera
- Lenspen lens cleaner
- Swiss army knife (an actual one that I bought in Switzerland)
- Weifeng WF-531BT tripod
- Mini tripod
- Selfie stick
- Verbatim portable iphone charger
- iPhone 6 Plus
- Digital Photography Guidebook (our bible while were still learning the ropes)
- A5 notebook and pens
So who else has a passion for photography and camera gear out there? For those who do… what’s in your camera bag?
I can’t wait to get back out and about to take more photographs. I absolutely love it!
