All packed for shooting the Fort Ticonderoga event!
This was a rather different packing list than I usually have for a reenactment!
Looks like you´re travelling with light luggage hm?
I wish you a lot of fun!
Here´s the link to the Fort Ticonderoga website.
looks like a beautiful place
Fairly light, but certainly not the lightest I’ve done by any means. This is clothing for 5 days and food for 2 days (the other days I will be able to buy food), and includes appropriate attire for sleeping on someone’s couch as well as weather ranging from 90 degrees to 55 degrees. There’s a lot of miscellaneous small stuff that you can’t see in my camera bag, but all the lenses fit with room to spare, assuming that my camera is always in my hand and never in the bag.
To be honest, I took not all that much more when I went to France for 3 months, and used the same day-bag style backpack that I’m using for this weekend trip.
I’ll be sleeping in my car for the first two nights, and then staying with a friend on the third and fourth night.
Sleeping in the car is quite hard core. I prefer at least to have straw or some sort of air matress, but as we´re usually travelling as a group it´s mostly organized and on many events we even drag around a whole campsite.
My minimum equipment (if I only take stuff for one role) is definitely more though.
Oh - btw - nice camera equipment!
Well, if I were going to this event as a reenactor instead of as a photographer, I’d be sleeping with my unit on straw under the stars (we don’t allow the use of tents, even period ones). But, I’m being paid for this shoot, so I’m there in modern clothes this weekend, hence why I’m sleeping in my far comfier car, rather than under a blanket.
Thank you for your comment about the equipment, but sometimes it gets a little heavy. Fully loaded, that camera bag weighs in at 28lbs. But, this is what I do for a living, so it comes with the territory.
