Inside My Digital camera Bag | Jacob Gordon

My identify is Jacob and I’m a marriage photographer based mostly in Perth, Western Australia and I’ve been photographing weddings for the previous 4 years.

I first gained an curiosity in pictures once I was residing in Vietnam. I needed to seize and doc as a lot of the road life there as I might because it was so energetic and quick paced. This finally led to a ardour for marriage ceremony pictures and I haven’t regarded again since.

I’m a passionate photographer and I’ve a documentary strategy to weddings. I take nice pleasure within the problem of capturing probably the most emotional and unforgettable moments on the marriage day.

I initially began utilizing two Canon 5D III our bodies once I first embarked into pictures. When photographing sixteen hour day weddings in Vietnam the load of those two digicam our bodies was important.

I finally determined to go mirrorless and get two Sony a7 III’s. This selection has saved my physique and again immensely.

I preserve my setup easy and stick with the Sony 35mm and Sony 85mm for almost all of the day. The much less I want to consider with gear the extra artistic I may be, focusing solely on capturing the moments of the day.

Sony A7 III – I exploit two and they’re extraordinarily mild and moveable. I simply love how light-weight they are surely.

Sony FE 35mm f/1.8 – my favorite storytelling lens for weddings. I exploit it about eighty p.c of the time.

Sony Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 – offers wonderful color and distinction. I’ll sometimes use this one for a portrait session as nicely.

Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 – I not too long ago upgraded to this lens from the Sony 85mm f/1.8. Though the f/1.4 is heavier I discover the colors and distinction to be far superior with the f/1.4. I hardly ever have to the touch the photographs in put up edit. This lens sits on my second digicam physique and is very helpful all through the ceremony.

Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2.0 – I solely deliver this out for some huge group pictures or for the dance flooring, so hardly ever used.

Godox V860II – I normally solely ever want to make use of two flashes on the one time however I’ve 4 as a result of I’ve had points previously with the Godox flashes misfiring. For the value these flashes are excellent.

Holdfast Cash Maker Straps – I’ve had a praise on these at each marriage ceremony I’ve ever photographed, simply love them.

Manfrotto Nano Mild stand – I’ve two of those and they’re tremendous mild and ideal for my on a regular basis marriage ceremony pictures. I used to be initially nervous that they had been too mild and would fall over on a windy day when utilizing them exterior nonetheless I’ve by no means had any points.
