Here is my bag:
My name is Fabricio Schmidt, was born and raised in Germany and live in Brazil since 2007. I am a photographer and visual artist and participated in events, group and solo exhibitions in Brazil and Europe.
My main focus is the use and processing of photos in montages, collages and installations, but also alternative printing processes.
One of these alternative printing processes, which I use, is the technique of palimpsest,
where I print photos on used paper like old money (without value), maps, graph paper, letters and pages of books.
My bag and the content are very simple, low cost and old school. It’s not the hipster stuff, but worked really good.
I love to shoot film, especially with my favorite camera the Praktica LTL3, which is really my workhorse and survived longer than my Leica R4. I tried a lot of lenses, but I prefer the Helios 44M-4 and the Revuenon Special 2.8/135mm lenses, because of their simplicity and performance. I use this set up to shoot persons in urban locations and in the landscape. It’s very light and therefore I’m very agile at photographing.

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, 720px across is optimal) 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.
