Inside Juan Manuel Gutiérrez’s Camera bag! (Bag No46)

Hello StreetHunters!

Nothing more enjoyable and gratifying than walking  around the city with a camera in my hand. To do so, the lighter the better. I use mostly the Canon 5 D Mark II with a 40mm 2.8 lens, at night I change the lens and use the 50 mm 1.8. I love that lens because it´s small and light. I carry the camera around my neck,  I don’t carry any bags.  I prefer being comfortable.   Other times I carry only my Film Camera which is really light and easy to use. I have better lenses but they are much heavier.  I know I lose quality by not using them but I rather be light and comfortable to be able to enjoy my rides.

My camera bag contains:

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 Readers via the 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!

We thank you in advance for your participation and we are really looking forward to finding out what YOU are hiding in your camera bags! Send everything in at! Stay Sharp & Keep Shooting!

About “What’s in your camera bag Street Hunter!”

  1. Spyros, in continuation with my other question today on the other page, i think my bag would become like that of Juan Manuel Gutiérrez’s….. if i too added another 50mm f1.8 STM lens. Canon is also looking to upgrade its 50mm f1.2 version. So, it adds to the confusion, even if i don’t prefer heavy lenses (which are expensive + sharper most of the times). And when we shoot streets @ f/8 or f/11 or even f/16 or f/22 at times, then why to buy f/1.4 lens which are soft wide open (exception : sigma 50 art).

    I want to put an end to this confusion once and for all.

    • Chirag, the confusion you are feeling is your lust for new gear. There is no real confusion. You are creating it. Winogrand shot only with a 28mm, Henri Cartier Bresson shot only with a 50mm. Don’t give your self to many choices in your mind. Focus on your photography. Focus on getting better at your art.

  2. yes, i am lusting for new gear, as i have resisted this temptation for far too long, but i would like to overcome it. Winogrand and Bresson shot with one focal length for decades. Yes i would try to get better at my ART rather than buying Sigma ART lenses etc…. (pun for fun) 🙂

    thanks a lot Spyros for the reply. I am yet to find the other page, i forgot where i asked the main question… if you can send a link, it would be great. thanks.

    in the meanwhile, i am trying to search it.
