Full step by step guide with photos here: Turning your Satchel bag into photographer's bag, 29th January 2012

To turn your retro Satchel bag, if you have one, into real photographer's bag is quite easy. All you need is an old bag like Lowe Pro with velcro inserts, scissors, super glue, sticky velcro stripes and, of course, time. Once you've converted your bag you can easily fit in one pro DSLR body with three prime lenses, flash gun, usb cable, tons of memory cards, lense cleaning kit, spare battery and you'll still end up with some extra space.

Why retro Satchel bag? It's 100% leather, very sturdy, comes with 5 years warranty, none will ever think of it as a photography bag, looks tiny, but fits a lot in.

In my case I'm using retro Satchel bag in 15' size. It takes Nikon D700 body, Nikon 35mm f/2, 50mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.8 lenses, Nikon SB800 flash gun, lense cleaning kit, spare battery, lots of memory cards and usb cable. If required I can add one extra prime lense and another flash gun. Or instead of Nikon D700 body I can put in Panasonic GH2 with Rode VideoMic Pro and adaptor for Nikon lenses.

So my step by step guide:

1. Buy or get as a present one of these retro Satchel bags preferably in 15' size.
2. It's empty inside, has main and side compartments. We'll use main one to put velcro stuff in, side one for accessories.
3. Get an idea what would you love to have inside. Do some fittings and come up with the idea how you'd love to arrange velcro compartments.
4. Draw a sketch inside the bag with a pencil.
5. Try out velcro inserts, which ones would work better.
6. Measure and cut velcro stripes.
7. Attach velcro stripes. They should be sticky. Don't use glue at this stage.
8. Put the inserts in.
9. Load the bag with all the equipment.
10. If it all looks fine - remove everything and re-attached velcro stripes with super glue now.
11. Put everything back.
12. Do a velcro strip for side compartment as well if required.
13. All done. Try it out.

Vintage Red White and Blue Purse

Via Flickr:
This vintage faux leather purse is so cute and unique. The purse closes with cinch handles. There are two pockets on the front and back of the purse. The purse measures 12 ½” by 10 ½” with 8” handles. This purse is perfect for the 4th of July!

This purse is in very good vintage condition. The outside of the purse is in wonderful shape; there are a few wrinkles from normal use and a small mark that is not very noticeable. The lining is clean, but there are small rips near the top seam of the purse. All and all this purse is in great shape and very usable.

Batgirl Bag

Photographer's note:

Show your adoradation for all things Batman and comics with this one-of-a-kind sling hobo bag emblazoned with Batgirl. (Info on the illustration is below). The back of the back in a black swirl fabric with two rows of decorative stitching to match the front so you can reverse the bag if desired.

In the best superhero spirit this bag is a team up between three artisans, myself, Charles and Mollie. The wonderful hand-painted reclaimed fabric of Etsy Artisan, Mollie of Monkey Shines designs was just the perfect compliemnt for Charles' art... almost like she created the piece just for this bag!


Mollie says:
I love it! I'm so glad you could make something beautiful out of that piece.

Of course, the focal point of the bag is Charles' amazing Bat Girl drawing. The dark lady of comics, Batgirl, is shown at her brooding best in this illustration by local Las Vegas artist Charles Holbert Jr.. This artwork is an original creation and is used with permission.

You can see more of Charles' work at
www.kidnotorious.deviantart.com or check out his ten-page section published in the new Sentinels Anthology from Drumfish Productions www.sentinelsonline.com/ as well as a pinup in The Uniques #2 www.uniquescomic.com/.

Lone Heroine measures about 12" wide by 8" high. It closes with a matching orange zipper and the inside has a zipper pocket in the black swirl lining.
