One of the first questions I am often asked, is what type of camera equipment was used to take this picture? So with that thought, lets start with the camera bag it self and then see what is inside. My style of camera bag is the Lowepro backpack. With the amount of camera equipment I carry, I find the backpack bag far easier to handle, than a shoulder strap bag.
The camera of choice for me is the Hasselblad 503CW with a 80mm F2.8 lens and a winder, with a Pentax Digital spot meter. I also have four film backs, making it extremely easy to change film types between shots, from color film to black and white film as an example. My color film of preference is Velvia ISO 50 and my black and white film of preference is Ilford Delta Pro ISO 100. Both of these films produce excellent grain structure and sharpness.
Now I also have two additional lenses as well. The 50mm F4 lens is a modest wide-angle lens and it’s the lens I use most frequently. My other lens is the 150mm F4.0 lens, a nice lens to have handy for shooting landscapes, especially when the subject matter needs to be pulled in just a bit.
I carry five filters with me too:
1. Red Filter-29-Black and white film only.
2. Yellow Filter-23-Black and white film only.
3. Polarizer Filter
4. Neutral Density 3.0 Filter-Black and white film only.
5. Neutral Density 0.9 Filter
So this is what I have in my camera bag when I am off shooting.
Very informative – thanks for sharing Matt!
