Inside Marcelo Davera’s Camera bag! (Bag No147)

Hi.
I’m a Brazilian photographer living in São Paulo. I’m 48 and started on photography about 30 years ago, but I’ve been taking street photography more seriously since 2012. I have two basic setups:

  1. When I leave the house exclusively to shoot, I usually take my bag with a D610 and two lenses, an old Nikkor AF 24mm 2.8 and a Sigma 24-70mm 2.8. The first one is lighter and covers most of my needs and the Sigma is a good alternative when I can’t get close enough to my subject. Eventually (but rarely, I must admit) I put in the bag my FM2 loaded with an Ilford ISO 400 film roll.
  2. When commuting or walking due to work (I have to walk a lot while working), I take a small Canon G12 in my backpack or carry it in a small Lowepro case attached to my belt.

Inside Sebastian Jacobitz’ Camera bag! (Bag No146)

I am Sebastian Jacobitz, Street Photographer from Berlin and currently traveling in Southeast Asia, including remote places in a small village near a mountain for a few weeks.

Normally I try to go as light as possible when I am photographing in my hometown and don’t need much except the camera, maybe a flash and some spare batteries. But for the travel, I needed to prepare much more thoroughly because electricity is not stable in the village as well as the mobile Internet.

So here is my camera bag and its content.

Announcing the Beginners Street Photography Workshop in Thessaloniki, Greece!

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,
I know how overwhelming it can be for you, the beginner street photographer, to look through all the options street photography has to offer, organise all information available from various sources, choose what is best for you and select your path. I know this first hand. It took me many years to finally find myself as a street photographer.

Through this course, I want to share with you what I have learned through the years, help guide you on your path and try to inspire you to see street photography from a different perspective. I will teach you composition techniques, lighting techniques, some basic theory about the masters of photography that have set the foundation for modern street shooting and many other things which you will find listed below in the course notes. However my most important goal will be to teach you to be yourself and how not to be afraid to express your emotions through your photography.

A workshop taught by two tutors!

But this time I will not be teaching alone. I am very excited to announce to you all that I will be teaching alongside acclaimed Street Photographer Yiannis Yiasaris. Yiannis is a Greek Street Photographer from Thessaloniki that is based in Melbourne, Australia. He is a world famous published photographer that has won numerous awards and has had his work exhibited many times. He will be travelling to Thessaloniki this February to teach this exciting workshop with me in his beautiful hometown. For more information on Yiannis Yasaris, please read the Tutors section below.

Inside Thomas Hammoudi’s Camera bag! (Bag No145)

Hello everyone!

My name is Thomas Hammoudi, and I’m a 28yo street photographer (and also blogger) from France. I’ve started street photography two years ago, by shooting my everyday trip to work, from Rouen (in Normandy) to Paris. I started with a bulky reflex camera, quite discrete (thanks silent mode!) but very heavy, probably too much to be bear every day. So I change for a Canonet this summer, and the Fujifilm this winter. I don’t made any difference between my analog and my digital practice. The analog just appear to be quite limitative (you can’t change the ISO, speed is limited to 1/500th of a second), but except that, they’re pretty the same rangefinder cameras : You point, you shoot, no noises.

So, in the bag there is:

xmas 2017

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers!

The holidays are upon us! We can feel the celebratory mood in the air around us. It is a time for us lucky ones to reconnect with our families and the people we love. I say “us lucky ones” because I know that some of you who are reading this will probably be working, or don’t have the means to be with their loved ones during the holiday season. To all of you I send my warmest and most positive thoughts. I have been there myself and I know the feeling. It is temporary. Next year things will get better. To everybody else that will be celebrating these days with their friends and family I wish all the best. Enjoy your time with them, cherish it and make memories with your cameras!

Inside David Fidalgo’s Camera bag! (Bag No144)

Hello Hunters!

My name is David Fidalgo, also known as “Bricks”. I’m one of the CoFounders of La Calle es Nuestra, one of the most important Collectives in the Spanish Community.
At my beginnings in Street Photography I used to shot with a heavy full frame system, which was also very noisy (when you use the burst mode in this kind of systems, you feel as if you are in the middle of the war with an AK-47).

That’s not nice for Street Photography (at least for me).

Last year I bought the X100F compact system and everything changed. Now I go everywhere with it and feel like a ninja… silent and lethal. That’s why my advice is that, talking about cameras for Street Photography, smaller is better (maybe not in terms of pure quality, but your pictures will look more candid and original).

Let’s check what’s inside my bag!
