In your bag No: 744 – Andrea La Rosa


In your bag 744, Andrea La Rosa
Not a bag in sight. Because Andrea carries this lovely setup in his pockets. Come and check it out.

My name is Andrea La Rosa and I live in Palermo, Sicily, Italy.
I am a 21 years old medicine student, but my real passion is photography.

I have been taking pictures since I was 10, mostly shooting digital since 4 years ago when I bought my first Nikon FM. After that, I just started collecting film cameras and developing/printing my own negatives, but I never disliked shooting digital too.

Here is what I carried for my last trip in China (mostly Beijing and Shanghai).
My favorite focal lengths are 28, 35 and 50, so I usually take only primes with me.

Actually there is no bag, because everything I carry fits my pocket or is standing on the neck strap. Less is more, you know…!

The cameras are:

- Leica M4 + 50 Summicron v3. My favorite camera, full manual controls, no batteries, photographic perfection. Love the summicron looks, especially with b&w films like TriX and Neopan 1600.

- Ricoh GR (aps-c) with the outstanding GR Lens 28mm f/2,8. That is the camera I always bring with me for my everyday life pictures. It is light, small and unobtrusive, perfect for some street.

- iPhone 4. Mostly used for Instagram, but it is also my pocket light meter.

I took the bag shot with a Nikon D7000 that is my main camera when I want to use a digital reflex.

Thanks for sharing your pockets with us Andrea, that M4 is lovely.
Check out the links 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. Please understand that there is a long wait now as there is a backlog of submissions. Not all make the cut, so make sure yours is funny/interesting/quirky. And please make sure the shot is of good quality, as the ones that are not do not go up.

Cheers

  1. I like you photography. Sicily is one of those places that for many reasons got stuck in time, a place in which everything is changing to stay the same…you live there, so in time I wish you will make the best out of this possibility and this uniqueness. Cheers!

    1. Thank you. I always try to keep it as simple as possible.
      Living in sicily is a good start to get into streetphotography, people are interesting and the location too, but you have to be aware of you behaviour if you really want to go deep in people’s life stories.
