Inside Keith Holdaway’s Camera bag! (Bag No16)
My name is Keith Holdaway. Living in the city of Southampton, I enjoy the chance to photograph on the streets, but I am very new to this genre. The Fujifilm XT1 is my latest purchase and was bought specifically to travel light, as you can see from the contents of my bag I keep it simple. There are times I will leave the bag behind and carry the camera with a wrist strap attached, as I feel more invisible that way. I put spare batteries in a pocket and I am set to shoot all day. I really enjoy this little camera, its one or two faults are well out weighed by how it performs, I just can’t put it down!
The street photography I am comfortable with is more the candid shot, I am not into pushing my camera into people’s faces. I find inspiration from images on the StreetHunters group.

Rules of participation
Each person that submits the contents of his bag will also be allowed 150 words to describe her / him self to the rest of the StreetHunters.net Readers via the www.streethunters.net website pages! We will even allow one link, back to your website! It will be loads of fun! Why? Well, because we will start to get to know each other through these small 150 word descriptions and of course through the contents of each one’s bags! Now, when we say Camera Bag, it doesn’t have to literally be a bag. It could be a pouch, a backpack, pockets of a jacket, whatever. All we need is the list of all the contents and a photo of those contents on a wooden or carpeted (preferably) floor from above. What must be included in the email you send us? Here is the list of things you need to provide us with in order to have a valid entry:
- 150 word description of yourself and your Street Photography quirks, habits, tips, whatever. 150 words MAX.
- Photo of the contents of your bag and your bag next to those contents on a floor, shot from 90 degrees above. High quality, big size.
- List of items included in your camera bag.
- Link to your website OR blog OR facebook page OR GooglePlus page OR whatever.
- A closing remark 20 words MAX. You can say for example something like Thank for letting me share the contents of my bag, now stop looking into my privates and go take some photos!
