Inside Frédéric Saez’s Camera bag! (Bag No48)
My name is Fred, i’m a french IT engineer by profession and photograph by passion. Telling a story through my photographic sensitivity is the main engine of my motivation to take pictures. While walking in the city I learn to sharpen my eyes – with or without a camera for that matter – still under observation , sometimes just fit in his head becomes a reflex. Humanist by definition , urban by nature and fascinated by the image, I naturally came to street photography.
I choose a full-frame system (Leica) for the compactness of cameras and the quality of the lenses. I use to shoot digital but i recently came back to film too.
Trying to take pictures every day, when I have some free time or when I am traveling, i should confess having a smaller bag too for every day use.
My camera bag contains:
- Leica M9-P
- Leica M6
- Summicron 50mm f/2
- Voigtlander 35mm f1/4
- Summicron 28mm f/2
- Extra battery
- Extra memory cards
- Kodak Tri-X 400 rolls
- Lens cloth
- One Apple
Contact me if you travel through Paris , I would be pleased to help you discover hidden aspects of the city.
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!
