In your bag No: 342 – Hogarth Ferguson


In your bag 342, Hogarth Ferguson
Today bag is immense, seriously. a load of different formats, it is a wonder Hogarth can carry this around, but he does. Come and have a look.

Im 28 and live in Baltimore, Maryland; I try to travel out of the country 3 to 4 times a year. When I travel, I take a mix of what is shown, and only what will fit in the bag, with the exception of the Speed graphic, which I just have to carry; the film holders will fit in the top of my bag though. When I am not travelling, I am usually shooting around Baltimore or the surrounding areas, usually at night, and not people, but sometimes in the day, and people.

I shot film before digital, then digital strictly for a few years, and now, increasingly more film. I rarely bring my D90, which is why it is not pictured here. Here in Baltimore, I am part of a group of people who shoots mostly film, we meet once a month and chat film. Our flickr page will be linked at the bottom. I will stop with all this and Just list the gear.

Two Yashica TLRs, one LM, which was my first and my favorite camera, and one LM, which is the same thing, but with a different meter. Sometimes I carry both and shoot different films.

Nikon S with a 50mm 1.4, I love this rangefinder, though an SP will be mine one day.

Nikon FM2 with a 50mm 1.8 or 20mm 2.8

Werra 3, which is surprisingly compact, and has the best rangefinder patch.

Speed Graphic with Rodenstock 90mm F5.6 which I use more and more, a bag with a TLR and this weighs a ton, but is well worth it

Compact Manfrotto tripod (no idea the model) that fits in a side pocket and is perfect.

Gossen Digisix, just a compact, accurate light meter that stays on my neck

Nook Tablet (rooted, I mean, of course) that I only carry when overseas

Provia 100F is my preferred slide film, and Fuji Reala is my color film. I shoot exclusively Ilford for black and white.

It all goes in my Crumpler 6 Million Dollar Home, which fits in my Timbuktu with clothes. So far, it has been on 6 continents and 19 countries, and more on the way.
