In your bag 879, Ariel Leuenberger
Ooooh this is a lovely bag for a Sunday. Come and check it out.

Thanks to your site I learned how to develop film, both black & white and color. It has inspired me a lot and keeps on doing so. Thanks for the great work!

I’m a swiss street photographer and here’s my bag, a pretty simple setup. I mostly do street photography and only take one camera at a time. It goes in a Think Tank urban disguise bag, together with a JCH film case, my notebook, iPad, phone and business cards.

With my film cameras I shoot at home in Zürich. They are my father’s old Leica R5 with a Summicron R 50mm/f2 lens and orange filter. And the lovely Konica Hexar I bought from you. I love T-Max 400 for b&w or Portra 400 for color. I develop and scan all the films myself.


When I go traveling, I bring my OM-D and two lenses (Panasonic 20mm & 25mm). That’s because I am not too good with film – I often damage my negatives while developing. So when I’m away I want to make sure that my pictures are OK.

Thanks and have a nice sunday

    I checked out your site and like the way you shop the wedding. Very nice high key shots. I am guessing you spot metering because of the high key backgrounds? Well done!

      Dear Pete
      Thank you for your kind words. Yes, I allways use spot meter for people. I like the faces to be quite bright. The surroundings therefore turn out even more bright. But this ads a dreamy touch to the shots which I like.
      Cheers, Ariel
