In your bag 921, Kate Molenkamp
A delightfully simple setup today. This site definitely needs more ladies. Check this it out.

G’day! Kate Molenkamp for In Your Bag.

I am a photographer from Melbourne (Australia). I am particularly interested the social landscape and lately I’ve shot a fair amount of street.

First of all I would like to start off with my no.1 baby. I have a Mamiya 645 Pro TL, finally equipped with a Sekor 80mm 1.9 (such a beauty), WLF and Crank (Previously was a default prism viewfinder and motorised crank – bulky). The intimacy I share with photography and shooting at waist level has been unmatched with any other camera I have used thus far – Hence why I have taken this camera on journeys as far as Greenland.

Kodak Ektar 100 is my film of choice, and depending on weather and light Kodak Portra 400 is my back-up. Both have served me very well.

My bag has recently expanded from a recent trip to South Korea. There I found a Sekor 55mm 2.8 (for the 645) and my newest camera, a Contax T2 (loaded with Ektar, naturally).

Thank you to JCH for continuing to feed my lust for film cameras. I am about to play around with my Konica Rapid Omega 200 (6×7), so I will be sure to send you an update of my bag and website someday.
