We need more camera bags

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers, for more than 2 years now we’ve been sharing with you the contents of your camera bags. We have finally reached the point where we are at the 100 bag precipice. We have published 99 street photography Camera Bags and we are waiting for that elusive 100th camera bag to one day pop into our mailbox.

Why the camera bags have stopped

Since we published camera bag 99 on August 1st there have been no new submissions and as such the “What’s in your Camera Bag?” weekly posts have stopped being published. Unlike our other posts, the “What’s in your Camera Bag” posts depend 100% on you and your level of participation.

The 20 Influential Street Photographers 2015

The first crowdsourced list of Street Photographers ever made

Two weeks ago we asked for your help to find the 20 most influential contemporary Street Photographers and the feedback we received was amazing. The comments just kept flying in and we are so grateful for that overwhelming participation. You recommended many Street Photographers out of which a list of 75 names was finally made. We think that this has been the first crowdsourced list of Street Photographers ever made and you all made it! Thank you!

You recommended and you voted

A week ago, we asked you dear Readers to do one more thing for us and that was to vote for your most influential Street Shooter out of the list of 75. You voted 21,137 times!

Thank you!

It is understandable that each one of you is influenced by different Street Photographers for different reasons and that is what makes this vote even more interesting. Influences play an important role in the way an artist perceives the world and his/her art, so it is only logical that each one of us has different sources of inspiration, making our perception of what we consider “an influence” unique. What is important is that you all helped us with your vote to find who are the 20 most influential Street Photographers at this time according to you. So here they are:

    In search for the 20 most influential Street Photographers

    Introduction

    Exactly one year ago we wrote a post that went viral at the time. Since then it has been viewed more than 75000 times and commented on more than 50 times. This post is called “The 10 most Influential Active Street Photographers“. If you haven’t read it, we recommend you check it out and let us know what you think in the comments. In this post, we presented Street Photographers that we think are worth mentioning for 2 specific reasons. How influential they are and how active.

    Influential: “having great influence on someone or something.”
    Active: “engaging or ready to engage in physically energetic pursuits.”

    Inside Thomas Leuthard’s Camera bag! (Bag No29)

    Hello street hunters,

    After 5 years of street photography I realized that you don’t need more than one camera with one lens with an empty SD card and a full battery. If you go out longer, you need another battery. But I don’t need the USB thumb drive, I don’t need a lens cleaning towel, I don’t need painkillers and I don’t need water. Basically we all carry too much stuff which we don’t really use. Sometimes it’s nice to have, but most of the times it’s a waste of weight.

    My camera bag contains:

    NOTE: This is a Guest Blog post written by Thomas Leuthard for www.streethunters.net


    Introduction

    After five years of intense street photography with different cameras I chose to shoot some time with my mobile phone. The reason for that is simple. First of all, I had not always been carrying a camera and also got bored using it. It seemed to me that my subject was repetitive and redundant. I didn’t see a lot of new things and thought about stopping street photography. After purchasing a new mobile phone, I signed up for Instagram again after years of inactivity there. The decision was clear. I wanted to shoot Instagram only for 50 days and built up a community there.

    Street Photo of the week by Thomas Leuthard

    Thomas Leuthard is one of the most influential contemporary Street Photographers that I know of. He is from Switzerland and has a huge passion for shooting in the streets. Thomas got involved in Street Photography some years back and since then has been as dedicated to the art as one can possibly be. Traveling the world, Thomas has managed to capture images of people from numerous countries. His collection is immense and the quality of his work is always top notch. He specializes in silhouettes and candid street portraits. He emphasizes in good composition and perfect exposure. You will rarely see a photo of his that is blurry or out of focus. I would characterise him as precise and extremely detailed with a very good eye for unique faces and details. If you visit his flickr stream you will see some really amazing works, each photo is a feast for your eyes. Thomas’ contribution to Street Photography is of the utmost significance. The reason is because he offers his knowledge and experience through many communication channels. He teaches workshops, he shares tips on videos on YouTube and most importantly he has written books that any Street Hunter would find most useful. I recommend you visit his e-book section on his website to download and read them all. They are totally free, well written and easy to understand.
