In your bag number 182, Tyler Bedgood
Hello bag lovers. Today we have a purist street bag for you. Simple and precise, this is everything that Tyler needs to shoot the mean streets of Chicago.

My name is Tyler Bedgood and I capture candid street photos in Chicago, IL. I have been shooting street for a while now and I love it. I’ve never felt anything near as good on a creative level. Currently this is the set up I take with me. I try to operate with a minimalist mindset. The less gear I have the less I have to think about what I should be using which permits me to keep my mind focused on my surrounds.

From left to right…

A sweet old vintage camera bag from Etsy.
Yongnuo 560 Speedlight.
Flexible leather journal to write ideas down.
Canon 60D with an adapted old Nikon 28mm f2.8 manual lens. (what I use to shoot all my street photography)
Crumpler Industry Disgrace Camera Strap with a C-Loop knockoff from Amazon.
Lens brush and cloth.
Lens cap.
Business cards and holder. (for all those people who think im a pedophile, or act like i’ve just stolen their wallet, I give them a card so they can see what horrible things I do with all the photos I take)
Tiffen 0.9 Nuetral Density Filter. (just incase I do want to use that 2.8)
Multiple Micro Center 16GB SDHC class 10 memory cards.
Cowboy studios cheepy fm wireless flash transmitter and reciever. (works perfect, most of the time)
I am currently working on finding my street style and I have a few street photography projects in the que. Please feel free to check out my latest work on flickr and read about it on my blog. Thanks for looking!

    Hey Bellamy! Thanks for the post! It looks great and i’m happy to be a part of “whats in your bag.” zoolkareem, I use a nikon lens because I wanted a manual aperture ring’ed lens for a video camera rig back in the day. I use it as my main camera lens due to the fact that it is the widest lens I got aside from an 18-135 zoom and who wants to use a zoom for street photography?! Not that you can’t however. It also has focusing distances on the lens which helps me to zone focus. None of my other canon lens’ currently have this. It’s just a really great lens and it was only 79 bucks.

    Thanks to everyone for checking out my links and thanks again to Bellamy for these awesome blog posts.
