On assignment for Top Sekrit Magazine photographing Top Sekrit Person for an upcoming issue. Here's what I packed, if you're interested.

The assignment is photograph one person in a multiple of situations, some casual and others posed from closeup to wide with horizontals and verticals in a place that might not be very interesting.

So I'm packing the Leica M10 with a Voigtlander 50mm f1.5, the Leica M9 with a Voigtlander 28mm f2, a Voigtlander 21mm and finder, a Leica 90mm f2.8 and some lighting equipment, the cheapest flash I could find that has a manual mode and a PC sync, a pair of pocket wizards and a small double collapsing umbrella, notebook & pen with all the appropriate contact info written down on it. (Not pictured, a small light stand)

It all fits in a small camera bag and I'm covered from ultra wide to medium telephoto. I suspect I'll probably use the 28 and the 50 the most and will probably just end up leaving them on the camera.

Think I'm missing something? Let me know.

See you at the airport.

Not sure I'd recommend doing this, given Youngnuo non-hardiness vs. PocketWizard bulletproofing, but you could make the kit smaller by swapping the Plus IIs for a Yongnuo YN-560-TX. This would let you use the built-in receiver in the YN-560III, give you remote power/zoom control, and eliminate the need to carry one set of trigger batteries and the sync cable. But. Yongnuo. Cheap for a reason.
