Inside Digby Fullam’s Camera bag! (Bag No38)

Hi Street Hunters!

I thought you might be interested to see inside my camera bag, which is a Lowepro Event Messenger 250. I carry lots of gear, as I change equipment to suit my needs and mood. Sometimes I’ll bring only my camera and one other lens, other times I’ll bring two extra lenses and all my flash gear. The Lowepro bag I use is very big, but I can fit loads of things in it if I want to. There is even a space at the back to fit an A4 pad or, if I’m not walking too far, a smaller 13-inch laptop like a MacBook Air or Pro.

My Lowepro Event Messenger 250 contains:

Tha Graudate


Welcome back to Talking Movies – a guide to how you can use scenes from famous (and not so famous) movies to ignite your creative juices and develop your artistic vision in your street photography. The first instalment of Talking Movies took a trip down memory lane into ‘80s nostalgia with Manhunter, and for this week’s column we’re winding the film spool right back to 1967 and the truly brilliant piece of cinematic storytelling that is ‘The Graduate’.

Off Cam Flash in Street Photography


Stuck in a rut with your street photography? Looking for a way to add drama and pop to your images? Want to make some up close and personal “in your face” shots like the Magnum maestro Bruce Gilden? Are you yearning to practice some fast street photography at night but can’t afford to shell out for a new low-light monster camera or a fast lens? Then read this guide for how to make some great street photography shots very cheaply using an off-camera flash!!

When I’m out on the streets with my camera for hours at a time I can sometimes find that I get really demoralised. Some days I just won’t ‘see’ anything happening that makes a good street photo. Note how I put ‘see’ in inverted commas – I personally believe a great street photographer will always be able to find something happening in the street and use their ‘vision’ to create a great shot. But unfortunately I have days sometimes where my photographer’s eye is a little cloudy! I also have days where I’m just unlucky – I’ll miss shots through timing – a perfect subject will arrive at a scene too fast before I’m able to frame properly, or something will happen that disrupts my shot. The day I shot this photo was just one of those days. I was feeling very annoyed and frustrated with the work I was producing, and nothing seemed to be going ‘right’. I was also feeling creatively at a very low ebb – we’d just had the craziness of the carnival in Rethymno and I’d been experimenting with new techniques using an off-camera flash – post carnival I didn’t want to go back to making ‘boring’ shots that I felt like I’d made a hundred times before.

Getting inspiration from Cinema - Manhunter


Movies are a great way to take inspiration for your street photography. A truly great movie will be a piece of true escapism for the viewer, as they are immersed wholly in the experience and world the director is presenting them with via the magic of sound and vision. A brilliant movie will leave the viewer with a stream of memorable scenes that will leave a lasting impression. The sheer complexity and cost of movies means that each scene is planned and arranged down to the last detail, and when you watch a well-made movie with a critical photographer’s eye you can start to spot all sorts of hidden details and elements in each shot. With thought and practice you can use what you spot to inform and better your photography. The incredibly fluid nature of street photography means that a street photographer doesn’t have the luxury of time to plan their photos – you need to be able to act fast and instinctively. By improving your visual and artistic literacy through watching and analysing movies you can ensure that your brain remains sharp for when you are able to hit the streets and start shooting.

A guide to Street Photography in Norwich


Norwich is the city where I was born, and despite having never actually lived there, it’s a place where I’ve spent a great deal of my time over the years as I went to school and university there. As the town where I have lived all my life is quite small and Norwich has a population of over 200,000, it is on the urban streets here that I learnt how to be a street photographer. Norwich is the capital of Norfolk, and is located in the heart of East Anglia, in the ‘hump’ that protrudes to England’s South East. It is a fantastically historic city, and the city centre is home to a truly remarkable number of brilliantly preserved mediaeval buildings, which form an interesting architectural backdrop to photos. The most distinctive of these are the beautiful Norman Cathedral (which has the second highest spire in England), and the Norman Castle, located right in the city centre. Norwich is a very popular shopping destination which means there are always people on the streets, and it has a strong cultural identity and nightlife too owing to the two universities based in the city.

Fellow street hunter Spyros Papaspyropoulos and I have been very busy recently shooting loads of street photos. It’s currently the height of the Greek carnival season in our town of Rethymno, which means the place is a real hive of activity. Thursday 12th February was the Greek celebration of Tsiknopempti (Τσικνοπέμπτη), which literally translates as Smokey Grilled Meat Thursday! Greeks traditionally all head out on this night and eat loads of meat, in preparation for the coming fasting of lent before the Easter celebrations (98% of Greece’s 10.7m population is classed as Greek Orthodox). Spyros and I shot lots of interesting photos from that night which we’ll be sharing very soon, but I wanted my first weekly pic to commemorate an even more surreal event that happened on the Saturday following  ‘Smokey Meat Thursday’.
