What I wear in the field, take 1

October 20, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I was up in Maine last week for various reasons, but I made sure that I could get out and explore a little bit while I was there. I wanted to make it to the top of Camden Hills to photograph the beautiful changing leaves and the sunset all at the same time. However, I left late after talking to a contractor and knew I wouldn’t make it up there in time, so I went to one of my favorite spots along the way thinking I could get a little exercise in and see the sunset.  That favorite spot is the home to many a photograph over the years, the Rockland Breakwater.  As soon as I began the one mile trek out to the lighthouse, it began to drizzle. Luckily, I am usually prepared and had on a few layers of clothing to keep me warm and dry. For some strange reason, which has never happened before, as I was walking out there, three people stopped me to ask what I was wearing. That seemed odd to me as I usually just throw on some clothes and head out the door. Maybe it was the light blue down coat that matched my blue camera backpack?! So, in thinking about things as I was trekking out there by myself to photograph what ended up being a magnificent sky explosion, I realized that I haven’t read much about what photographers wear when they venture into the field. I figure, why not write a little bit about what I wear when I shoot…

For this shoot, I was not as prepared as usual, but here goes. From the bottom: liners are truly awesome yoga pants made by Marika, socks are Smartwool, shoes, Asics, Jeans are 7 for all Mankind. On top, Patagonia sports bra, Paradox long sleeve merino wool, ExOfficio shirt, and finally a SmartWool down jacket!  As far as gear, my backpack is the f-stop Anja pack and my tripod that’s showing is Really Right Stuff. All necessary layers and gear for all possible weather.

Hope that helps all of you inspiring photographers. Any questions, feel free to ask! I will continue to write about what I wear on my adventures from now on. I am not sponsored by any clothing company who has paid me to write about this, but I would certainly be open to being sponsored to write about gear. :)
