In your bag number 180, Josh Gooden
Todays bag is a monochrome masterpiece coming to you from the USA. A very leica heavy bag, but what a lovely layout. Check it out…

Hi, my name is Josh Gooden, and I am a cinematographer based in Harrisonburg, VA. I mostly do commercial and event work, but whenever I get the chance, I enjoy shooting street photography. I love the Leica M series, as it’s discreet, and the whole setup is very light. The lenses also mount my cinema camera, so they hold their value in two areas. I’ve recently gotten into shooting more film, and am loving the M6 and Tri-X. It is the perfect combination.

I have been through a few bags, but my favorite thus far has to be the Thinktank Retrospective 5. It’s lightweight, discreet, and holds exactly what I need.

Here is what is in my bag:
Leica M9
Leica M6 TTL
Leica 35mm 1.4 FLE
Leica 50mm 1.4 ASPH
.9 ND filter
Extra M9 Battery
Two rolls of Portra 160, and two rolls of Tri-X
Pelican SD case – a fantastic waterproof case
Moleskin notebook

    Excellent bag, I say, not that heavy. The 35 and 50 in lux is the best night combination for size and weight.

    The use of the M9 and the M6 is perfect. I understand his kit perfectly. Good show. Do you keep the lenses mounted? (I do, usually the fifty on the MP and the 35 on the M9P. But I keep two cloths to wrap the lens and camera to thin profile up while i sling one of the other.)
