It’s that time of year for cozy sweaters, tall boots, and scarves. Not that it gets very cold here in San Diego but it’s finally time to put on a little cardigan in the evenings. When planning what to wear for family portraits don’t think matchy; as in everyone in a white shirt and kaki trousers.  Plan along the lines of a color scheme. You want to coordinate not duplicate the same look for all your family members. If you pick a simple combination of three colors you can make sure everyone shows their individuality while looking like a whole family.  Each outfit doesn’t need to have all three colors only enough to make them all coordinate together. Here is a color scheme of warm browns, rust oranges, and purples.

A Bag for Every Camera
When I pick out a came bag for my gear I have a few criteria I like met. It has to hold my walking around items for portrait sessions. This usually includes an my choice set of lenses, one body, speed light, extra batteries, extra memory cards, and small miscellaneous items. I look for bags that have removable inserts so I can adjust for the amount of gear I carry with me that day. This also helps as they can convert to a regular purse. I like how you blend in for street photography if your gear bag doesn’t scream “Look there, it’s a photographer with lots of expensive gear!” Lastly, I have to admit I love pretty accessories so the bag must look good. I’ve come to the point where all my large tote style bags are duel purpose camera bags. If I don’t need a camera than I just carry small clutch style bags. I still own a black backpack style camera bag but only use it when hiking or roughing it. If they made a cool Camelbak / camera backpack with adjustable inserts then I’d probably buy it. On to the cool stuff.
