It has been a few days since I had a bag up, since the 120 film came out I have been rushed off my feet. But now I am able to sit down and go through some, and this one is lovely. Modern and digital all together.
My name is Frederick Deserva and I am from Manila, Philippines. I’ve been photographing all over the Philippines for almost 2 years now. Photographing for me is just a reaction to what I’d like to preserve through my experiences with friends and travels.
I like the fact that getting photos involves sometimes ( and most of the times) a directionless kind of exploring.
It’s definitely a documentation for me, but I feel gravitate towards loose, almost contrived looking scenes.
So here’s a shot of the bag that I will be carrying for my 2 weeks trip to the great island of Panay, located at the center of the Philippine Archipelago.
My main camera is my Nikon D7100 with a 24mm f/2.8 lens and Nikon FM2n with a 50mm f/1.8 series E lens, both of these cameras have the same mount so it’s easy for me to switch lens when doing either portraits, documentary or street. I also carry a Fujifilm Instax for sharing physical photos with my subjects or friends. The other stuff: scarf, power bank, extra battery, extra SD card, mini tripod, 4r album, instax album, films and my trusty 35mm 1.8G.
Thanks for sharing your bag with us, Frederick. I hope you had a cracking holiday. Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on Japancamerahunter.com Send me a high resolution image of the bag. Optimum size is 1500px across. Please ensure there is a bag in the shot, unless you don’t use one. The more you can write about yourself the better, make it appealing and tell us a story. Snapshots of your gear with a camera phone and no words will not be featured.
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.
Camera hunter, photographer, camera geek, Tokyoite and Englishman all rolled into one gracefully balding package. I have been living and working in Tokyo for 14 years now and it is my home. Tokyo is heaven for cameras and I know the secret spots and special places.
