About me:

When digital came in to the professional world in the early Nineties, I did not care for it and left the business, and returned to school. I earned my BFA in photography, and then I got my MFA in photographic studies. I studied under Beaumont Newhall who wrote A History of Photography while I was at UNM. I taught non-silver processes of of 18th and 19th centuries. I very much enjoyed the academic world, and met some interesting people. For many years I worked with an 11x14 Deardorff view camera with interchangeable backs in 8x10, 5x7, and 4x5. Then the major manufactures stopped making the film and papers that I used for many years, and I used up my stores I had frozen. I got my first digital camera in January 2013, and I am still tryng to find out if I like it.

I guess I am still an old school guy, I keep at min four rolls of film, two Fuji Provia 100, and two Kodak Ektar 100. These are for the two Nikon FEs, one with a 28f28AIS, and the other has a 50fi18D. I have a red led flashlight for the night shots. A compass, and notepad with pencil. Old time locking cable release for the bulb shots with the FEs. A MD-12 motor drive with tripod plate. My digital camera with multifunction remote timer. A charged spare battery for the camera. Most of the things in your list, plus a neutral density filter.
