In your bag No: 1392, Alec Tucker
Alec has a film stuffed bag for us today. 4 film cases! That is a lot of shooting. This is what Alec describes as a ‘semi-budget kit’, with some great classic cameras. Check it out.
Hi, my name is Alec Tucker from Auburn, California. I’m currently a student at community college about to transfer to a state university in Los Angeles to study Filmmaking, specifically Cinematography.
I shoot with film cameras to practice framing, composition, and lighting to get better at Cinematography, as well as for fun when I have some free time. I’ve been trying out different formats and camera types recently, hence why I have different ones here. I haven’t found what I mainly enjoy photographing yet, but so far nature photography in black and white has been the most fun!
My kit is semi-low budget at the moment, but I plan to purchase a Hasselblad XPan someday to emulate wider aspect ratios, similar to cinema cameras for films nowadays.
