Inside My Digital camera Bag | Jacob Gordon

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

I first gained an curiosity in images 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 ultimately led to a ardour for marriage ceremony images and I haven’t regarded again since.

I’m a passionate photographer and I’ve a documentary method to weddings. I take nice pleasure within the problem of capturing essentially 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 images. When photographing sixteen hour day weddings in Vietnam the burden of those two digicam our bodies was important.

I ultimately 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 persist with the Sony 35mm and Sony 85mm for almost all of the day. The much less I would like to consider with gear the extra inventive I may be, focusing solely on capturing the moments of the day.

Sony A7 III – I take advantage of 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 take advantage of it about eighty p.c of the time.

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

Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 – I lately 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 not often have to the touch the images in put up edit. This lens sits on my second digicam physique and is particularly 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 not often 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 worth 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 Gentle stand – I’ve two of those and they’re tremendous mild and ideal for my on a regular basis marriage ceremony images. I used to be initially nervous that they have been too mild and would fall over on a windy day when utilizing them outdoors nonetheless I’ve by no means had any points.
