This is a position for flashbulb owners who should also be in the bag. The light modifier, whether it be a mini softbox as shown above or a diffuser for the lamp, will disperse the flash of the flash. It will be useful in situations where we can not flash the ceiling or the wall. It is also good to stock up on flash filters for flashlights that will help to change the color of the light. When working with the model, a blend will also be used, from which both the light and the flash can be reflected.

It may seem funny, but handkerchiefs come in a backpack. We do not talk about situations when we have runny nose, but when we are outdoors, it is not difficult to get things wet. Any dirt easier to remove with a handkerchief than in postproduction. It is worth to wear both dry and wet. Handkerchiefs will also be worn to wear equipment. True to the best lens is such a microfiber , but when we do not have salvation it may turn out to be a normal handkerchief. It is worth carrying it with you.

You never know when a torch will be useful. Now everyone has it on their smartphone, so the road will light up, but even the smallest pocket-sized flashlight has more power. It may be needed during exploration, in the woods, but also to find equipment in the bag when it is dark. In emergency situations it can even replace the flash. Besides, it's great for painting with light . If you are looking for a good flashlight look at activeManiaKa, where we have prepared the entire section devoted to flashlights.

The blade fits in any EDC, no matter whether photographic or not. The best solution may be the Swiss Army knife , which in addition to the blade has a lot of useful tools. We will reach the blade, with screwdrivers we will tighten any clearance and the corkscrew will open the wine after a successful session. I take my knives everywhere, it is with me even on the pitch. Most interestingly, he even added himself to the game of American football. The athlete wanted to attach the jaw protector to the helmet with a clamping band and needed to cut off the tip. Before anyone from the staff scrounged scissors I already had a knife in my pocket back.

First aid kit may seem unnecessary, but it is really worth to have it in your backpack. With your first aid kit you will feel more comfortable and will be prepared for more emergency situations. It does not have to be very elaborate – everyone adjusts it to their needs. First aid kit should contain medications for headache , patches, hydrogen peroxide. It is also worth to put into it a bandage, protective gloves, triangular scarf, thermal blanket, as well as some hand sanitizer and mask for artificial respiration. This is not the first aid kit of the strictest sense, but it is worth having it with you. In addition to these few items, it is also good to bring water. When I go to the matches always accompanied me with water, a pocket knife, handkerchiefs. The things that I mentioned in the first aid kit are with my headache medication, because this can annoy photography. On departure games I also take some kefir or something to eat just.
