Inside Yanidel’s Camera bag! (Bag No141)
Hello, my name is Yanidel and I am a Swiss street photographer based in Rosario, Argentina.
For the last 8 years, I have been using a Leica M9 with a 35mm Leica Summilux Asph and a 60mm Konica Hexanon F1.2. I believe I use both lenses with equal frequency and switch depending on the need of a specific shot or my mood of the day. I do own other lenses and like to break the routine every once in a while but I never go out with more than two lenses; a wide angle and a tele (50-75mm). I try to avoid bags but do use and old Bally leather bag to carry the idle lens and a spare battery on hot summer days when I can’t wear anything with a pocket. When not out specifically shooting, I will still take my camera with one lens over my shoulder in case I stumble on a worthy scene. The unexpected often happens when you least expect it.
The contents of my camera bag are:
- a Leica M9
- a 35mm Leica Summilux Asph
- a 60mm Konica Hexanon F1.2
- a spare battery
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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org! Stay Sharp & Keep Shooting!
