Inside Roy Wilkinson’s Camera bag! (Bag No133)
My name is Roy Wilkinson. I was born in Kent UK. Being a bit of a loner, street photography, which I have done for 4mths, is ideal for me. I’m not an ‘in their face’ photographer consequently my lens choice is a 32 -83mm zoom mounted on my Nikkormat Ftn. I take photos in all weather. Sometimes I go out and don’t get a shot. I look for ‘moments’ when everything is ’right’. It’s exciting not knowing when these will appear and having to be ready when they do! I love photographing groups of people; tourists for example. Often, when the shot has been taken, I think I’ve missed ‘the moment’ but always the image indicates interesting interactions! I use Iford XP2 and occasionally Kodacolour 200 film. I use the Sunny 16 exposure guide and, carry a light meter. Most used setting; hyper focal distance.
The contents of my bag:
- A £1.00 ‘Charity Shop’ shoulder bag.
- Nikkormatt Ftn camera body
- Nikon (Zoom Nikkor) 43-86mm f3.5 lens fitted with a collapsible rubber lens hood.
- Nikon Nikkor 50mm f2 lens fitted with a collapsible rubber lens hood.
- Zorki 1 Rangefinder 50mm f2. Green milk bottle top lens cap.
- Gossen ‘Sixtino’ Selenium Light Meter
- Notebook and Pencil attached to it a copy of STREET PHOTOGRAPHY LAW – A SIMPLE APPROACH.

- 1 X 24 exposure Kodak 200 ASA Kodacolour film
- Clip-On sun glasses.
- Small bottle of water.
