Inside Stephen Foster’s Camera bag! (Bag No6)

Most people know me as a reasonably quick witted guy, social with some big love for street photography.
Almost true…
..Now.
But here’s a secret, a StreetHunters exclusive.
Most of my life I have been a shy social introvert. I fear large groups of people. My job reenforced that personality trait to some extent early on but with the years I have overcome most of that natural tendency through my birthdays, career and family.
Now I’m almost normal.
Travelling from Newcastle to London evenings away from home left a space for a hobby. Photography came along end of last year. Bridges, buildings and churches.
Then out of the blue London forced me to shoot people. I couldn’t resist its draw. Click=Panic every time. I have spent a lifetime watching people and now there was a use for it. If I could overcome the fears that are rooted in me.

Street Photo of the week by Ksenia Tsykunova

Ksenia Tsykunova’s work is amazing! Her images are one of a kind. She is from Moscow and she was born in 1986. She has won 2nd place in the Miami Street Photography festival. That is a big deal if you consider that Bruce Gilden is the judge along with Alex Webb and more amazing legends of Street. Before she got into Street Photography, Ksenia was studying social and economic geography of the USA and also doing some short film directing. Her passion for photography started in 2012 and since then she continues to grow and share with us amazing photography.

Inside Mavritivs’ Camera bag! (Bag No5)

Hello.

My camera equipment solely consists of Nikon 1. I believe this system to have a lot of potential. Hopefully, it will keep growing as I intend to continue “investing” in more lenses and cameras. I use this kit for all my photography work, not just street. Everything pictured goes into a Fossil backpack which I carry everywhere. Even in Texas heat, carrying everything is not an issue because the cameras are small and light. In the notebook I keep notes for future portrait ideas and random thoughts. The knife is used primarily as a tool. The business cards you see are double-sided, the “front” being the white side and the “back” being black side.
Finally, without a watch, I will probably go insane.

Cosyspeed Camslinger 105

Introduction

Dear StreetHunters.net Readers, this is the first official review that we are writing and the lucky product that will be reviewed is the Cosyspeed Camslinger Camera Bag. Since we haven’t done any reviews ever before and we have no experience writing one what so ever, please understand that we might not do a perfect job on the first go. What is important though is that we will write the Cosyspeed Camslinger Camera Bag review objectively, based on the experience after using it for nearly one month in the streets. It is imperative that you, our Readers receive our honest opinion. We think it is equally important for the product makers to get an honest opinion also.

In this review, we will examine the Cosyspeed Camslinger Camera Bag from different aspects and we will look at various factors that make it the product it is. So, here is the list of things we will look at / examine in our review:

  1. Size / Weight
  2. Varieties
  3. Product quality
  4. Durability
  5. Ergonomy (usability & comfort combined)
  6. Selling point
  7. Price / Value for money

For each point we examine, we will give the bag a grade from 1 to 10. So for example if we like the size we will give it an 8 or 9 or 10. If we don’t, we will give it a 2 or 3 or 4 and so on and so forth. At the end, we will add up the points, divide them by the number of things we examined and get an average score. Of course one important thing you should take into account is that we will look at this product from a Street Photographer’s perspective only. So let’s get to it!

Introduction

Dear StreetHunters.net Readers,The time has come for you to vote for the best “The Colour Blue” Street Photograph! We received lot’s of submissions and just managed to filter them a few minutes ago. AndrewCasper and myself had to decide which photos to add to the poll and which not, as we do every month. All the photos that were submitted are great! Thank you all for your participation.

Following the same method as previous months, we have uploaded the images for the Theme contest into a lightbox gallery and under each image we have placed a name (label) that works as a unique identifier. So, what you have to do is to write down or remember the unique identifier of the image you like the most and then vote for that image in the poll below.

As always, we haven’t got any names under the photos. The reason for that is to keep the voting as unbiased as possible.

Inside Dan Berntsson’s Camera bag! (Bag No4)

Hallo StreetHunters!

My name is Dan Berntsson and I am 51 years old from Sweden. I had many hobbies over the years, but I have come to realize the body cannot do everything, so now I can photograph even more. I love to take pictures of people in different situations and preferably in an urban environment.

I began photographing my family, sunsets and fine landscapes with an Eos 33v and when Canon G10 came out I shoot more and more street photos. I realized that snapping people on the street was the funniest thing I’ve done. When I have been to the streets for a couple of hours I get this flow and I see everything is like a theatre, it’s a great feeling!

The main thing I want with my pictures is to boost your imagination! Anything else is a failure.

Inside Derren Hodson’s Camera bag! (Bag No3)

Photography is my hobby, I’m not a creative person, I fix things so i like things to work. My camera bags reflect this, i have two (well actually a lot of them) but two for this photo. One is my “carry all” for when I’m going out on a days shoot, the second is my “carry light” for when I get chance to take a few shots when I’m on lunch…..or with the Wife! My camera gear changes fairly frequently, not because i have G.A.S, but because I am highly critical of them as they are a tool and should do as you command, not….having to live with the ‘quirks’.
I love both Olympus and Fuji (and Sigma…but that’s another story!) My Fuji gives me the quality of shot i want and the Olympus gives me the flexibility and lightness i want…..Yes my dream would be a Hybrid of both!

The Colour Blue

Introduction

Dear StreetHunters.net Readers!

It is time for the Monthly Theme Contest for July 2014!

The Monthly Theme Contest is a fun activity that anyone can participate in! Every month we choose a Theme. What we ask is for you our StreetHunters.net Readers to participate by each sending to us a Street Photograph at streethunters.net@gmail.com based on that Monthly Theme.

So for example if the theme is Freeze time, then we would like you to each send a photo with a Freeze time moment. Your photo can be taken any time in history, we don’t mind, as long as it has been taken by you and nobody else. Once you send us your picture, we will decide which are the 5 or 6 or 10 best ones and we will post them on our website.
