Tips and Tricks in a photographers bag

What's in your bag?

Episode 2 of "What's in your bag?" features LuminAID. The weekly episode will be published on #What'sInYourBagWednesdays and feature the odd and unusual items that professional photographers carry around in their bags. Come join me as we dive into my bag and check out What's in my bag?

Today we'll talk about light. I don't know how many times I'm on location before the sun rises or striking a set in the dark. This goes with the territory of creating beautiful visual content so here's one of the solutions I use to work in the dark. These lights pack up into a package that weighs next to nothing and is smaller than your wallet, so it's always in my bags - I even have one in my first aid kit - check it out:

LuminAID makes a lightweight easily packable, rugged, bright light that can be charged during the day (while it's folded up) and is easily inflated. The translucent plastic body gives you a really nice area light to work with.

Now you can hang the bag on a branch through it's carrying handle, clip a carabiner through the the loop or hang on a nail or hook. So clean up, finish writing your log book or grab some light to transfer footage with this beautiful little light.
