how to pack smart for on location work?
Lately, I ve been doing more on location work with 4x5. This is my workflow now
build camera& have it on tripod before actually photographing process,
have a think tank backpack, with extra lenses+film holders+light meter+digital camera+changing tent+extra film, etc
But I watched a LF video tonight, the photographer had 2 shoulder bags, one for film holders only, the other bigger shoulder bag has extra stuff in it. Feel like the advantages are
1. one bag dedicated to film holders will give you better sense on how many sheets you have & have not shot, better for organizing
2. shoulder bags are more free-standing friendly. my backpack always falls, never stands. this makes me worry about gear safety
I am very curious about your workflow and how you'd like to pack your bags to make the process easier.
Will you share your wisdom?
