What’s in Her Bag: Katherine Jackson

Tell us a little about your bag.
So, when you ask what is in my bag, it is important to know that I am an equipment junkie. The items pictured here are my most used and loved items.

I don’t have a studio yet. I do mostly on location inside or outdoors. Outside in a beautiful natural setting is my preference. I am in the design process right now. My desk has been relegated to a corner of the bedroom for now and this makes a much better picture!

I have 4 more lenses and another camera body not pictured. I also have a Camranger and a Manfrotto Tripod I usually have in the car or on the bag. These are the ones I use almost exclusively for portrait photography. (I also dabble in architectural photography. My twin sister is a successful architectural designer.)

Items in my bag now:
Nikon D810 DSLR
Nikon D700 DSLR (not pictured)
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200mm f/2G ED VR II Lens
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4G Lens
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G Lens
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Lens

Which lens is your go-to?
My most loved and most used lens is without question the 200mm/f2. It was a total game changer in taking my work to the next level. And I got it on sale! What could be better!

Least used item in your bag?
My least used lenses are the 35 and the 50. I love the intimacy of the 85 and the 200.

I have done some lifestyle sessions this year, though, which have forced me to look at things from a different perspective — I am enjoying changing things up.

 

Thank you, Katherine, for showing us what’s in your bag!
