In your bag 913, Jimmy Yang
Young photographer Jimmy is back with a new setup for you all to grab a look at. Check it out.
My name is Jimmy Yang, I’m a 23 years old Taiwanese guy who loves street photography and cameras.
My bag have been on this site before (No.770), but since then I have been trying to down size my bag.
I used to carry three or four cameras (Leica M8, Fujifilm X100, Fujifilm Xpro-1, and Canon QL17) and few lens in my bag, but I started to realize it’s not necessary to carry all these gears with my all the time.
With the idea of simplicity in mind, I decided to go with a two-camera two-lens set up.
So, After few trades, I have my new kit and I would like to share them with you.
In my ONA Bowery:
- Leica M8 with Voigtlander 50/1.5 Aspherical VM
- Leica M6 with Leica Summicron 35 Pre-A
- Lumu Lightmeter
- SD cards for M8
- Batteries for M8
- Few rolls of Kodak Portra 400 for M6
- Notepad to keep track of my shooting
- My glasses, watch, wallet, and car key
I usually use my M8 and Voigtlander 50 to shoot street portraits, and M6 with 35 for everything else. And the Lumu light meter is very easy to use and works well with my iPhone which makes shooting the M6 much easier.
