When you go on a hike to take pictures, you might be thinking photography, but you're also an outdoorsman, whether you want to be or not. You still need to deal with sun exposure, dehydration, and cuts and bruises. And what about being as comfortable as possible while you work?
In this episode, I cover the "10 Essentials" that you should have in your daypack, along with your camera gear. Not only will you be prepared for mishaps, you will have a more enjoyable experience.
The 10 Essentials
- Water (1 liter or more)
- Food (I like Builder's Bars and nuts)
- First Aid Kit (include large gauze pads)
- Matches/Bic Lighter
- 1/4 roll of TP
- (Solar Blanket)
- Extra Layer (usually wind breaker with hood)
- Lip Balm
- Flashlight (LED's are compact and bright)
