In your bag 828, Moritz St.
There have been some really strong bags lately, and this one is no exception. 17 years old, shooting film and named after a mountain…How could this one be any better?
Hey there! My name is Moritz St. and I am a 17 years old student living in a small village in Austria.
I got into photography a couple of years ago shooting one of my dads old point and shoots but soon discovered the love for film. Since about two years i pretty much only shoot film. I do my own development and also roll my own film (mainly because its just a lot of fun but also because its much cheaper and as a student my only regular incoming is pocket money).
As for subjects, I wouldn’t say I have a fixed preference. I shoot a lot of environmental portraits, candids at events (like parties) , casual architecture, some street photography and even some landscape.
As you can see this is not a dedicated camera bag and i rarely use one. Usually the photo gear just goes besides the normal things i carry. This time my gear will share places with a sleeping bag and some clothes for a little city trip.
My main camera:
a pretty beat up leica m2
And two cheap russian lenses:
-jupiter 8 (50mm 2.0)
-jupiter 12 (35mm 2.8)
As i said I’m a student so no fancy leica glass for me but they do the trick just fine!
The 3 filmcanisters (another one in the cam) are loaded with fomapan 400 which will probably get pushed to 3200 course light’s gonna be low.
Oh and here’s my flickr:
(Dont be surprised when the exif says its shot on a lumix gh1 i just use it to digalize my negatives)
Hope you enjoyed and greetings from the alps
P.s.: thanx Bellamy for this awesome website!
