In your bag 912, Lars Jung
Back to a more conventional type of bag shot. This time from Germany.
My name’s Lars an I’m from the Lower Rhine region (the very west) of Germany.
I don’t remember how and when, but it’s been some years since I stumbled upon JCH.
Since then I have been looking at every ‘In your bag’ post and other articles you published.
Today I want to submit my own bag.
I started taking photos roughly 10 years ago with a DSLR but have gradually switched to analog.
This is because photography is some kind of recreation for me and I really like to handle old cameras as it slows thing down.
Most of my photos are taken on trips and travels I do.
I recently started taking portraits, but that’s some work I don’t want to publish online.
The bag is a black Think Tank Retrospective 10. I like it for the simple and thought trough design as well as its compactness.
Inside the bag is usually my Kiev 88 medium format camera with a Volna-3 80mm 2.8 as well as the Nikon F3 with a 50mm 1.8 Series-E and/or a Voigtländer 20mm 3.5 (hooray for pancakes).
I mix in the other cameras and accessories as I like and required.
On the picture (left to right):
Gossen Lunasix light meter
Berlebach Mini tripod
Filters (orange and infrared)
120 Film: Ilford FP4+, Rollei Infrared 400 and Fuji Acros 100
DIY Holga-120Pan with 90mm Schneider-Kreuznach lens (6×12 format)
Kiev 88 and Volna-3 80mm
Nikon F3 with colorful strap and 50mm 1.8 Series-E
135 Film: Kodak Tri-X and Portra 400
Spare back for the Kiev (I put black tape over the window because it currently has IR film inside)
Horizon 202 panoramic camera
Olympus XA (this is in one of my pockets most of the time)
Polaroid 103 Land Camera
Voigtländer Perkeo II
Thanks for sharing your bag with us Lars. That is a whole lot of cameras.
Check out the links and make sure you come and comment.
Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on Japancamerahunter.com. Send me a hi resolution image of the bag (please make sure it is horizontal) and its contents, with some details about yourself and what you shoot. Oh and don’t forget your contact details (twitter, flickr, tumbler et al). Send the bag shots here. Please understand that there is a long wait now as there is a backlog of submissions. Not all make the cut, so make sure yours is funny/interesting/quirky. And please make sure the shot is of good quality, as the ones that are not do not go up.
That is one very cool Tripod!
Is the Holga using the original built-in shutter or did you add your own?
Hi, the shutter is already included in the large format lense which was used.
