In your bag No: 275 – Mike Kijewski

Posted on by Bellamy


In your bag 275, Mike Kijewski
I have a very cool looking bag for you today, a bag from the USA. This one has even got a beer in it. My kind of bag. Come and have a look at what Mike keeps in his bag.

My name is Mike Kijewski and I currently reside in Allentown, PA. I’ve been shooting analog photography since I was a kid. I primarily shoot photos of my everyday life. I grew up shooting photos of skateboarding, snowboarding and my friends. I’ve recently fell in love with portraiture and hope to shoot more photos of architecture and texture. I AM A HOBBYIST. That’s it and that’s all. The idea of mixing business with pleasure (in regards to photography) seems impossible and I feel being unprofessional is a lot more fun.

MY BAG:

1970′s Leather bound Hinomoto Camera Case: Rad, but pretty damn heavy.

CAMERAS:

1979 Polaroid SX-70 SonarOneStep: I bought this camera new. Seriously.

Pentax K1000 w/ Smc Pentax-M 50mm 2.0 lens: My Dad’s camera. This one is invaluable. Hands down my favorite camera ever. Everything you need and nothing you don’t.

Yashica Electro 35 GS w/ 1.7 45mm Yashinon DX: My love recent love affair. One of the best designed cameras of all time.

Petri 7s w/ Petri ATL 1.8 Selenium 45mm: Everyone who has a selenium based lens knows just how cool they really are. No batteries. A 50 year old camera that keeps taking amazing photos and always inspires the “what type of camera is that?!?!” question every time I pull it out of the bag.

NECESSITIES:

Vivitar 45 Light Meter
Vivitar Zoom Thyristor 285 Flash
Marlboro Lights and a Bic
Ilford HP5+ 35mm Film
Yuengling Lager
Timex Watch
“Don’t Quit” – Unknown Author

Hope you enjoyed my bag. Keep pushin.

cheers.

Nice, I have the same Pentax and a Yashica GSN. I found a Ricoh KR-5 Super and took the lens off and switched it out, it was an Auto Sears 1.7 50mm. I love that lens more then the 50mm the Pentax came with that 1.7 helps at night.

Nice Bag!
