In the Bag

A Kodak Signet 50 that belonged to my uncle.


What’s in the Bag?

I read somewhere — and can’t for the life of me remember where now — that photographers tend to move through three stages in their relationship to equipment (it’s certainly been true in my case). They’re infatuated with it when they first get into photography; convinced it’s not remotely important to their work as an artiste as they gain a little more experience; then eventually come to realize it’s necessary, but by no means sufficient, to the task of making solid, fine quality images. So, for those who are just starting out or have come back round to paying a bit of attention to the sharpness of an image’s corners, the regretful appearance of unwelcome noise in the shadows, or the number of stops of dynamic range that might have been eked out of a scene, the images on this site were almost certainly shot with some combination of the odds and ends below.
