Inside Wayne Richards’ Camera bag! (Bag No168)

“Hello,

This is what I take for a regular days street shooting. Once, I am at the location I use the wrist strap so my camera is always in hand and ready. The only time I switch the camera off is to change battery.

I shoot Jpeg and Raw. My settings vary depending on the conditions and what I am trying to document but generally I try to stick to an aperture of F5.6 to F8 which is the sweet spot for the 23mm lens I’m using.

I find I am more productive if I have a project or theme in mind prior to shooting, rather than randomly wandering in search of something to shoot. At this particular time I’m enjoying experimenting with a high contrast style.

My one piece of advice would be to invest time in your own education rather than gear.

Inside Ulf Sejersen’s Camera bag! (Bag No167)

“Hi,

My name is Ulf Sejersen. Living in Middelfart, Denmark. I have been photographing since 1978, mostly street photography, abstract, minimalism, urbex. I just walk around and observe life. I ALWAYS carry a camera. I shoot primarily in black and white but some few series come in colour. Almost no kind of post processing, just converting colour to B/W in Capture one.

To keep it simple, my bag is a black Billingham Hadley Small Pro.

Introduction

Every street photographer devotes time and attention to choosing the perfect camera for street photography. Choosing the right kit is an essential part of the enjoyment of street photography. If one makes the wrong choice, it will most probably ruin the overall experience for him/her. However there are other things a street photographer should invest some research time into. Such as camera accessories.

Accessories play an important part in one’s comfort. So today, I am going to review one of those accessories, the camera strap. In my opinion, the most important thing in a street photographer’s arsenal after the camera (and lens). It plays a very important role in the overall experience and especially during long street photography sessions that last well over 4-5 hours. At least that is how I feel.

Inside Nathanaël Fournier’s Camera bag! (Bag No165)

“Hello!

I’m happy to share with you my bag’s content. That’s not properly a camera bag as I don’t use such bag, I always try to “voyager léger” as I wander the streets. My name is Nathanaël Fournier. I’m a 36-year-old photographer from France and I’m shooting with film cameras since 2004. The bag on this picture is one of my old fashioned luggage. It allows me to carry clothes and books from town to town and it has a part dedicated to cameras and rolls of film.

Street Photography is my best reason for not having a full-time job !!
