Posted on Updated on

Digital SLR Photography’s Editorial Team gave the Think Tank Photo StreetWalker their ‘Highly Rated’ award in their September 2012 issue!

Does my kit fit? Streetwalker

Rowenna Cox from Morris Photographic said:

I’m just kicking myself for not getting one earlier. The Streetwalker is such a lifesaver! It’s completely deceptive… Awesome stuff!

Here’s the gear I can fit’s into my Streetwalker:

  • Nikon D90
  • Lensbaby Composer
  • Tokina 100mm f2.8
  • Sigma 70-300mm f4 -5.6
  • Sigma 150-500mm f5 -6.3 ‘the monster’
  • Sigma 10-20mm f4 -5.6
  • If I don’t take the Lensbaby, my Cokin P Series filter wallet will fit in there.

Ed remarks: “This image is part of a large project I have been working on for some years about city life, and the place of people – particularly the workers – within it. I am very interested in combining high contrast, deep shadows and geometric patterns in the street scene with ambiguous human figures to produce images that hopefully resonate in a slightly different way from the street photographs people may have become familiar with in the past.”
