In your bag No: 1697 – Gavin Bain
Gavin shares with us his daily bag with probably the best present anyone could get. Gavin is certainly a lucky man.
Whether I release the shutter or not, I carry a camera and practice pulling the camera to my eye, checking my exposure guesses etc. I want to be prepared and ready should a moment present itself. So I take my Leica everywhere. Either with a Voigtlander Ultron 28mm or a Voigtlander Color Skopar 35mm. I also take an Olympus XA for the occasion I quickly duck out of the office and just want something to slip into my pocket instead of the Leica. I also try to pack a photo book to flick through when I get a spare moment to read it. In terms of subjects; I photograph everything but portraits. Although I don’t post everything to my Instagram.
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.
