Hi, my name’s Luke. On the weekend I’m usually shooting on the Strip in Las Vegas because that’s when the people are out.
I try not to take a bag if I can help it. When it’s not excruciatingly hot out here I wear a small jacket and stuff some film in my pockets. It’s almost always Portra or Tri X and a 50mm lens. I find that with wider than that I need to get too uncomfortably close, and it’s also harder to exclude things from the frame.
I like to keep 2 cameras so I can have color in one and b&w in the other, but I only take one camera when I go shoot. I think street photography teaches you to focus, but also teaches you not to take things too seriously. The next opportunity is literally around the corner!
It’s nice to look at camera porn, but we need to get out and shoot and keep Kodak in business!!
Check out my tumblr at http://streetsofvegas.tumblr.com/ Message me if you’re in Vegas and want to shoot!
Thanks for sharing your gear with us Luke. You are right, get out there and shoot.
Check out the 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. 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.
