In your bag 828, Moritz St.
There have been some really strong bags lately, and this one is no exception. 17 years old, shooting film and named after a mountain…How could this one be any better?

Hey there! My name is Moritz St. and I am a 17 years old student living in a small village in Austria.

I got into photography a couple of years ago shooting one of my dads old point and shoots but soon discovered the love for film. Since about two years i pretty much only shoot film. I do my own development and also roll my own film (mainly because its just a lot of fun but also because its much cheaper and as a student my only regular incoming is pocket money).

As for subjects, I wouldn’t say I have a fixed preference. I shoot a lot of environmental portraits, candids at events (like parties) , casual architecture, some street photography and even some landscape.

As you can see this is not a dedicated camera bag and i rarely use one. Usually the photo gear just goes besides the normal things i carry. This time my gear will share places with a sleeping bag and some clothes for a little city trip.

My main camera:

a pretty beat up leica m2

And two cheap russian lenses:

-jupiter 8 (50mm 2.0)

-jupiter 12 (35mm 2.8)

As i said I’m a student so no fancy leica glass for me but they do the trick just fine!

The 3 filmcanisters (another one in the cam) are loaded with fomapan 400 which will probably get pushed to 3200 course light’s gonna be low.

Oh and here’s my flickr:
(Dont be surprised when the exif says its shot on a lumix gh1 i just use it to digalize my negatives)
Hope you enjoyed and greetings from the alps

P.s.: thanx Bellamy for this awesome website!

    I’m 62, and I’m trying to reduce my bag’s contents to this. I’m close, but not quite there yet.
    Moritz St., you are a wise person! Good shooting!

    Nice photographs and perfect minimalist set-up.
    I am also heading in that direction but my GAS is actually too strong…
    Anyway, I always go shooting with max 2 cameras in my bag.
    I was curious to know how you use the digital camera to digitalize you pictures since I was thinking to do the same to save some time, the scanner is too slow. Do you have some kind of special adapter like a dia copier or do you just use a tripod and some kind of illuminated support for the film?
    Keep going !!!
    Gruss Gott

      Than you I think if i start earning money my GAS might get stronger.

      Yeah i just use a macro lense, a nice even lightsource and a filmholder from a scanner to keep the film flat. Put the camera on a tripid and done.
