In your bag 786, Benny Asrul
It is about time that Singapore represented. There has not been a bag from there for a while. But Benny has changed that with this lovely street shooters setup. Come and have a look.

My name is Benny Asrul, Indonesian living in Singapore. I love both street and landscape photography. Most of my works are black and white, as I can process the film myself at home. Sometimes, I shoot colors too, usually with positive films.

When traveling and taking street photos, I carry 2 bodies with 1 lens each, one for my bw films and the other for the color films. I-phone and a small note book are in the bag too, as I always write down when and where I take the photographs which help me a lot when I am managing the negatives later. My favorite lens is the 35mm which I use for most of my photographs, the other lens will be the 28mm.

I shoot films because it teaches me to be careful, think before press the shutter and I do enjoy the process too. Sometimes when I processed films I shot couple of months before, I had this “element of surprise” as I could just forget what I have shot before.

I love black and white photography simply because they’re very colorful.
