What’s in Her Bag: Chelsea Brown Blatchford of Brown Road Photography

WIHB_ChelseaBB

Tell us a little about what’s inside your Take a Bow bag by Bloom Theory.
Canon 5dMkIII, Sigma Art 50 1.4, Canon 85 1.2L, Canon 100 2.8L Macro, Sekonic light meter, bag of bribes (Smarties), business cards, bobby pins, mints, Day Designer (which doesn’t actually go in the bag, but it travels with me everywhere!), Fuji XT-1, Fuji 35 1.4R, branded USBs, iPad, phone, extra batteries, Square reader, memory cards, spare cash, lens cloth.

(Not pictured: Fuji x100T used to take these photos, and the Canon 24-70 2.8L that is hooked to a film camera for a personal project at the moment.)

Which lens is your go-to?
The Fuji 35 – I’ve become more and more hooked on my Fuji mirror-less system. I’m still not comfortable enough to leave my Canon gear at home, but it hasn’t come out of the bag much lately.

Most used item in your bag?
Smarties. They are the perfect bribe/treat because they can be doled out one at a time if needed, with small children, and they don’t make a big mess (read: sucker all over mouths and faces).

Least used item in your bag?
I’ve yet to need the spare cash, and I rarely use the Sekonic light meter. My in-camera meter works very well.

 

Thank you, Chelsea, for showing us what’s in your bag! It’s exciting to see a NAPCP photographer enthusiastic about her Fuji mirror-less system — they have a growing fan base in the professional photography community!
