In your bag number 11, Jing Wen from Singapore
I’m Jing Wen from Singapore and I’m a photographer working with Cake Images, a commercial and portraiture studio. Shooting so much digital for work, I’ve recently turned to film to shoot in my own personal time, and this is the bag I usually carry around if I’m not lugging around a tripod. Although I typically shoot close-up and macro shots of plants and flowers with my 5D2, with film I shoot more of the still life and landscapes around me and I’m using a Hasselblad for that because there’s something really classic about them.
Onto the bag, I’m using a Billingham Hadley Pro (Black/Black) and it’s got a really classy design that apparently lots of ladies like so that’s a bonus. Although many photographers recognise this bag, most other people think it’s just a normal bag so it’s not so conspicuous in that way. Very tough and durable bag by the way, and I feel that black with black trim looks more modern than the tan and brown trim version.
Hasselblad 500C/M & Zeiss Planar T* 2,8/80 CF lens - My favourite film camera now and I love using Zeiss glass as well, ever since I tried the Zeiss Makro-Planar lens
2x A12 magazine (Ilford FP4 Plus / Kodak Portra 400VC) – Lets me switch between b&w and color on the fly
Soligor Digital Spotmeter – For 1 degree spot metering with the Zone system
Lock & Lock Sports Handy Bottle – Hot weather in Singapore requires lots of water to stay hydrated
Redoxon container – For storing a finished roll of 120 film
B60 to 62mm adapter ring – Pretty obvious what this is for
Hoya 62mm red filter (25A) & Hoya 62mm yellow filter (K2) – For b&w filtering
Portra 400VC, Ektar 100, TMAX 400 – Spare rolls of film
Cable release – Used if I’m going for speeds under 1/60s or if I brought my tripod
LensPen – Just in case I need to clean the lens
