In your bag number 22, Asrul from Malaysia
Hello people, how are you all doing? I have been swamped lately, so I have shamefully fallen behind with the bag posts, but I am trying my very best to get them back on target. So here is another for you, this time from Malaysia. Over to you Asrul:
Im Asrul Sani from Ipoh City, Malaysia. Im a serious photographer for almost 15 years now. My main photographic work now is street photography but I still like to explore other fields of photography as well. Even though nowadays I do shoot a lot of digital but it’s really my film street gears that’s really close to my heart.
When Im on the street I love to travel light therefore I keep my gears to a minimum. Here’s what I’ll usually carry.
* A Jenova Wrangler Pro olive-colored canvas bag. I simply love the old school look of this unusual camerabag. It looked neither Billingham nor Domke but it’s cool
* A black Nikon FM body usually mounted with a AiS Nikkor 28mm f2.8. I have a silver FE2 and a silver FM2n as well.
* AiS Nikkor 50mm f1.8 “pancake’ for closer shots
* A Panasonic Lumix LX3 for ’emergency’ digital snapshots. This I usually keep in a X-Teem belt-pouch( not in the picture)
* Rolls of Fuji Neopan 400 and 1600. Neopan is my absolute favorite B&W films together with HP5+ and Foma 100. When I shoot streets in color I’ll use Kodak Ektar 100.
* A Lenspen to keep my lenses clean
* A cheap microfiber cleaning cloth.
* Spare LR44 batteries for my FM
* My Samsung Galaxy Ace phone. I used to carry notebooks and a pen but now I just too lazy to scribble therefore I use the Ace as a notepad.
Asrul has a Flickr and a tumblr where you can see his work.
