A landscape photographer has to travel around with the equipment required for photography. Thus it is essential for them to carry a backpack with him during his travel. The backpack should contain all the essential required when travelling to remote locations. Here are the best backpacking tips to be followed by landscape photographers.
Buy the best quality backpacking equipment as it may last for many years. It performs exponentially better. It might be a bit expensive to buy high-quality backpack but its worth for a landscape photographer.
Do not buy all the backpacking equipment at once. Just buy the basic requirements for backpacking. This can be used for a well-known location. Find out the equipment required after the trip based on the necessity. It takes time to find out which equipment best fits your needs.
Carry the heaviest backpacking gear in the centre of the bag. This provides stability and lifting power.
Place the backpacking gears used frequently on the top or side of the pocket. It helps for easy access to the gears during travel. It also avoids unpacking the entire backpacking equipment.
Arrange the equipment in the same place every time. This ensures easy access to the gears without the need to search them all the time. It also reduces the packing and unpacking time.
The bag contains a central compartment which is big and can accommodate heavy gears which are accessed rarely. Food for the entire trip also occupies the big compartment. Food for the current day is placed on the side of the pocket for easy access.
Sleeping bag and other stuff are placed in the open spaces. By this, the sleeping stuff can be arranged in the wasted empty spaces. The bottom compartment holds stuff of less weight like clothes, tents etc.
The above tips can be followed to backpack the equipment efficiently for a photographer in travel.
