In your bag 1097, Randy Rubirosa
Now then, I will give Randy a chance because he is so enthusiastic, but from now on if there is no bag in the shot then the shot will not be featured. So, Randy, next time, a bag please.
My name is Randy Rubirosa, I’m from the Dominican Republic, living in the city of Boston, USA. I’m a full time Architecture Student and a Self-taught Photographer.
Photography became my main hobby when a friend of mine who is a photographer saw my photos taken using my phone and he basically told me: Go and buy a camera!
My first intention was to take photos of the buildings, because my passion for architecture, but every time I went out I was more fascinated by what the people were doing on the streets, never before I had payed attention to them as I was with my camera in hands. By this time I didn’t know anything about what Street Photography is. One day in a Facebook photography group I used to post my photos, they started a discussion of Henri Cartier-Bresson, some Google searches and that’s how everything I do as a photographer begun.
The camera I used the most right now is my lovely Fujifilm X-T1 with the 27mm lens. It’s the perfect combo so far.
I got these other three cameras because I found your website months ago and decided to start shooting on film too, but I only shoot film when I’m visiting my parents in New Jersey, because a project I’m working there. All these films are from this projects, I haven’t seen any of the pictures yet. The unexpected, is really exciting.
– Fujifilm X-T1 + 27mm lens
– Pentax KM + 50mm f2
– Yashica Electro 35 GS
– Minolta Hi-Matic 7s
These two last cameras, I have them as a collection, not because I really use them at all.
Films: I started shooting with the Kodak bw400cn, but it’s getting to its last days, so I’m saving some I have left. Now I’m shooting Fuji Superia 400.
The headphones, music is always with me. Nintendo 3DS, when I’m on my way to hit the streets…
My Mac, I always carry it when shooting between home and college.
