Four Lenses and a Ceiling

August 08, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

During my recent road trip, I found myself carrying four lenses in my backpack. This makes for a reasonably heavy load when you consider that a gripped camera, teleconverter, batteries, filters and more are also packed in bag. Of course, I also carried a tripod and ballhead.

Yet, I was reluctant to carry less. During many of the photo shoots, I used all four lenses.

Here's an example from the Pennsylvania State Capitol. From the floor of the rotunda, I started very wide and then worked my way up through the higher focal length lenses:

While it can be a burden to carry a lot of lenses, it was worth the load to have the ability to capture the scene with a variety of pictures.
