Hello everyone, my name is Bryan I’m 19 and live in New Jersey. I first started my photography journey with a Nikon COOLPIX S6100 which I received as a gift back in Dec. 2011. I’ve shot with the Nikon for a year and carried it with me wherever I went, it became an appendage. My trusty point and shoot had broke and I felt like I was left with nothing and had a 2-3 month falling out with photography. I was grateful to have a nice chunk of change came my way, this was my opportunity the get “that” camera. Long story short, I purchased a Fujifilm X-E1 with the 35mm 1.4 XF and haven’t regretted my decision one bit. So without further delay, let’s get to the bag.
My bag is mainly centered around shooting street photography, the bag I use is a Domke F-5XB. Attached to the bag’s metal ring is a set of photographers rights gray cards I’ve purchased from PetaPixel, I slip these cards into the back of the bag where it’s supposed to be used as a waist pack. This allows me ease of access to the law in case I need to pull them out for quick reference. The camera is a Fujifilm X-E1 (taped over X-E1) with a matching flat black “Boop” shutter button, as well as the X-E1 Thumbs Up Grip in the hot shoe. Attached to the camera is the Fujifilm 35mm 1.4 R along my genius idea of a flip lens cap with a smiley face in it. I also carry two extra batteries for the camera, an extra memory card just in case, and a little Lens Pen cleaning supply kit. A map of NYC accompanies me as well and is left in the front section of the bag as I frequently travel into the city. Occasionally when I want to try something different and mix things up, I carry a 1950’s Biloret 2017 brass tripod with a Joby ball head, a shutter release cable, and a Skink pinhole.
Hope you enjoyed my bag, thanks for reading!
