In your bag No: 1360, Santiago
From Spain with love. Or something else James Bond themed. Santiago has a brilliant bag and some very interesting film for us to drool over today. Come and check out his fancy movies films and travel plans.
Hi Bellamy, my name is Santiago and I am a 24 years old Spanish guy. This year I will do something that I was planning from many years ago, after easter I will go to Japan to visit you (just kidding).
Mostly to eat like I never eat before because I work as a cook (I don’t like the word chef, chef mean boss and I am not a boss).
And also apart from photography I study Japanese in my spare time.
I started shooting film around 2 years ago just because I discover an old dusty compact Nikon that my parents use to take family photos.
I buyed a roll, and shoot it, unfortunately it was broken so f**k it, I check out ebay and get a cheap Nikkormat ftn and my GAS started.
But it thankfully stopped at the point of having 3 bodies and a couple of lenses.
To my trip I take a Lowepro Messenger 150 as my bag because is what in Spanish we say bueno, bonito y barato, in english good, pretty and cheap. Easy. I use to carry two bodies, one for color and another for BW, this time my recently buyed Nikon F3HP with a Cosina 20mm 3.8 and a Nikon FE with a Nikkor 50mm 1.4D, both well constructed and solid as rocks.
The lenses maybe not the best, but ok for me, also a Magnon 135mm 2.8 for something more tele.
And now, what is more interesting (i think), as film i choose Kodak Vision 3, my supplier, Cristobal Benavente, In your bag No. 960, bulk load remains of this gorgeous film. Sometimes from big productions as Star Wars VII or Spectre (they even make their own labels!!!)
So I pick a bit of every kind, 500T, 50D and 250D. For BW i use Tri-X, also bulk loaded, easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Oh yes, also my passport, a few pens and my word cards to keep studying kanji on the train.
I don’t share much of my work but just in case
That’s all. Thank you so much and keep shooting!
