"What's In Your Bag?" article by David Carol

A few weeks ago, David called me up and asked me if I would want to participate in this article he was writing. An article, he said, about photographers and their camera bags. And I said, "But - I don't really have a camera bag - I kind of just throw everything in my truck and go." To which David replied, "Perfect!"

So, there I was, in Wharton State Forest, New Jersey, on my way home from West Virginia, pulling all of the relevant contents out of my truck. One by one I laid them all out on my tarp: my camera, lenses, my Bolex and its motor, film holders, wet plate back, tripod, boots, dark cloth, guitar, cable release, light meter, polaroid, fixins for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, extra 16mm reels and my leatherman. Okay, okay, obviously this isn't EVERYTHING that I have in my truck when I go out to work. But, this was a small edit of the items that are most essential that I use most often.

  1. you should bring an ukulele with you, instead of a guitar: that would make room for more protein...
