Inside Neville Newman’s Camera bag! (Bag No177)
My name is Neville Newman and I shoot street as well as Aussie Rules footy in Hamilton, Ontario. Yes, they play footy in Canada. For street, I use only film. I don’t take a bag, only one of the cameras that I use: either a Rolleiflex TLR, an Olympus OM1 or a Yashica Electro35. A long-term project of mine is to draw the public’s attention to the scourge of poverty in our city. The pollies make a lot of noise about how awful it is, but the percentage of people, especially children, living in poverty keeps rising. At the same time, I try to capture the atmosphere of the street. I am mindful of Bruce Gilden’s assertion, that “if you can smell the street, it’s a street photograph”. Consequently, I am ruthless when it comes to choosing which photographs to post. I hope all of my street shots “smell”.
Items in my “bag”:”
- Rolleiflex TLR
- Olympus OM1
- Yashica Electro35
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 Instagram 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!
