In your bag 308, Jan Nullas
We have a bag for you today from the Philippines. And another knifey bag. What is it with you guys and knives? Are you all in mortal danger or do you all have a fondness for hard rind citrus fruits? Anyway, lets have a look at the bag…

Hello guys! Brief introduction first. I’m Jan Nullas from the Philippines, 19 years old, a college student taking up a degree in Advertising Arts from the University of Santo Tomas (UST), a history geek and a lover of all things related to photography. :D

So what’s in my bag? Well, for starters, my bag is a cheapo shoulder bag I bought from a local bookstore. A small monster, this baby can withstand the not-so-seasonal rain in my country and still keeps its contents from getting wet. I covered the logo of the bag with a flag/patch to make it more… nationalistic in a way.

As for it’s contents, here’s a list of what’s inside:


-My Canon Canonet I named Zoya. I got this from a store somewhere and it still works like a charm.

-My Nikon D3100 (Svetlana). Not pictured here since I used it to take the picture of my whole setup. ;)

Usual Stuff:

-A Canson 9×12 Sketchpad that I use for academic purposes.

-Notebooks (the red and yellow ones) for note taking and drawing random stuff.

-My DIY shoulder strap for my Nikon D3100.

-SD Cards and Film Canisters

-A Nikon 50mm f/1.8 Prime Lens (for street shooting)

-A calculator (for more academic stuff that’s related to MATH… urgh)

-Pens for note taking/drawing.

-Body and lens caps for my Nikon D3100 (again)

-A knife.

-My ID’s.

Other Oddities:

-Duct Tape

-My Netbook + Chargers (not pictured here)

-A sleeve for my netbook (in black)

I primarily shoot street photography ever since our class did it as an assignment back then. And after a little bit of researching and shooting, I fell in love with it. Aside from that, I also do a little bit of photojournalism, mostly of rallies and demonstrations that happen every other time here. I’ve been doing all of that for at least one and a half year, I guess.

    We Filipino street photographers slit the throats of our subjects right after we release the shutter.

    Jokes aside, I think I need to buy me some balisong.

    My grandfather always says that there are four things that you should always have with you: a small bag, a knife, a string and toilet paper :)

    Hey pinoys, where to get that Canon Canonet? or a Yashica in Manila? are the ones in Quiapo good enough?

      The ones in Quiapo are ok. To be sure though, ask for a complete CLA before purchasing.
