Several people have asked me what's in my camera bag. While I had shared this not too long ago, I realized that my lenses have almost completely changed since then. So, it's time to update what's in my camera bag! camera bag, Kelly Moore, Purple Bag

The biggest change, is that I only shoot with prime lenses. While there is a big debate (which I don't wish to get in with anyone, everyone has their own preferences), I like the sharpness and wider apertures a prime lenses offers. Although I sometimes miss the ability to zoom in without moving my feet, I feel the benefits outweigh the cons of a prime lens. And, if I can count photographing with a prime lens as a workout, even better!

1.Sigma 35mm F1.4 Lens - I did an entire post about this lens because I love it. I never thought I would love a wider lens, yet here I am, raving about it!

2.Canon 50mm F/1.4 Lens -  The nifty 50. I don't know a photographer that doesn't have one of these. This is probably on my camera most. It's also the lens I recommend to moms when they ask which they should get. We talk about it (and other lenses) in my workshop!

3.  Canon 85mm F/1.8 - My favorite lens for portraits. The bokeh it creates is beautiful without me having to be too far away.

4.Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens (not shown) - This lens isn't used as much as I would like. I love being able to shoot macro shots of newborns, and its even a decent lens for shooting portraits.

What's on my wish list? The Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM Lens. If you're wondering what to get me for a belated birthday present, it's this lens. I recently borrowed it from a friend and fell in love! It's perfect for chasing toddlers, or capturing them without them fully knowing. And don't get me started on the bokeh. I wouldn't mind another camera bag too. I love my Kelly Moore bag, but wouldn't mind another one, like this one, for when I don't want to carry all of my lenses!*
