Whether you’re a budding photographer using an interchangeable lens camera for the first time, or an enthusiast who knows the ins and outs of a camera, there are many simple tricks and cheap gear one can incorporate into their workflow, regardless of experience level or where you shoot.

To get some effective pointers, we went straight to the folks who use them day-in and day-out: professional working photographers. Most pros like to assemble a field kit that includes some basic supplies and accessories that they always bring with them on location.
