In your bag 364, Vivian Kong
Ooooh, we are getting there. One more day. But don’t think that this bag is any less important. Vivian is shooting with a lovely simple setup. Lets have a look at what she has in her bag…

Hi Bellamy,

I’d like to participate in “In your bag”!

My name is Vivian Kong and I’m from New York City. But currently I’m studying abroad in Nottingham, UK for graphic design at Nottingham Trent University. I’ve done film photography as a hobby, on and off, for about 2 years. I love the anticipation of waiting for a roll of film to be developed. I mainly shoot 35mm but have done a few 120mm. On this trip across the Atlantic, I’ve been shooting with film more than ever. In my bag, I try not to carry much when I’m out shooting. My Canon AF35m II originally belonged to my aunt and it’s for quick shots when I’m on the go. And as my souvenier I bought a Pentax Super-ME from a second-hand camera shop and I love shooting with it. Along with my precious ones are film, handmade sketchbook, bus pass, iPod and wallet.

My next goals are to learn how to develop film at home, and explore more into rangefinders.

Thank you!

Thanks for sharing your lovely bag with us Vivian. Developing film at home is not all that hard, as will save you a huge amount of money. Give it a try.
Check out Vivian’s link and make sure you come and comment.

Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on Japancamerahunter.com. Send me a hi resolution image of the bag (please make sure it is horizontal) and its contents, with some details about yourself and what you shoot. Oh and don’t forget your contact details (twitter, flickr, tumbler et al). Send the bag shots here.

Cheers

    Nice bag.

    A really good way to cut down chemicals and cost is using the caffenol developing method for b/w film .

    Let me know if you need any help I wouldn’t mind

    Finally! Another Pentax user. …I mean, it was getting a bit stale with all those Nikons and Leicas :-)
