When shooting in ruins, it’s important to know what to bring. In this video, pro photographer Kylee Leonetti will show you the ideal gear package. She suggests bringing a backpack and a shoulder bag for versatility. In your location gear bag, you should carry your camera body and a backup. For camera lenses, Kylee favors a medium zoom for variety, an 85mm for flowers, a macro lens for details, and a wide angle for architectural ruins. Because the locations can be dirty, it’s a good idea to bring a lens cloth and lens spray. Shooting in ruins takes planning. Pack only what you’ll need, keep your cameras safe and dry, and bring enough lenses.
