I’m thinking about going to India and maybe Bangladesh for four months starting in December this year. I’ll be going with my hubby, taking 2 bodies – 400D and 5DII. My usual travel kit consists of 3 lenses between the two of us – 16-35L, 24-70L and 135L (see my sig for the whole collection), and am planning to add my new little travel tripod to the kit. And no flash, I never use it much at home anyway. Anyone care to add other suggestions? I’ll be backpacking, trying to go ‘light’ so don’t want to take the whole kit. We’ll be on a budget too, so no leaving gear in dodgy hostel rooms, it’ll be on me most of the time, don’t want it to be too heavy.
See here for example of pics I took in Nepal – to get an idea of what I’m into (ignore the trekking bit): http://www.lyrebird-gallery.smugmug.com/Nepal
I have Hyperdrives and CF cards to take care of memory and back up, tested and works well. Does anyone have suggestions of filters I should take (grad ND...hard, soft, reverse, #stops), as I’m planning to take plenty of time in the cool places to focus on taking some good landscape/other pics – or practice to get better....
Also, what places are great for photogs – landscapes, people/culture, temples, national parks etc? Travel guides are written for everyone, so it would be great to get some advice from a photographer’s point of view of interesting - less obvious places to go.
