I found that you can fit a F2 in a backpack if you disassemble and carefully pack it up. The tripod it the really heavy part. I brought a Nikon 210mm, Kodak 203mm, and a Rodenstock 90mm lens for it too. I do wish I brought more DPP with me though.
I also brought one of my Speed Graphics, (3) 35mm SLRs, and (2) dSLRs.
First off: I'll photograph anyone I have access to, and who will agree to a photo. I do not interact with the locals much here, and will not really get a chance due to reasons that will not be discussed here.
Secondly: Yes, there are countless photos of Americans. Now show me where that makes these invalid.
Thirdly: I could have also shot these with a digital camera too, like most of the other photos here. What's your point?
Lastly: I challenge you to shot a portrait and have a 4x5 analog print in under 20 minuets with a point and shoot. Remember I do not have a darkroom here. Part of the reason for doing these photos was to build a rapport with the Marines. I want to shoot film photos with them, and this gets them excited for have photos shot of them that will take some time for them to see how they turned out. It helps to build trust with the people I want to photograph, and to me makes for more natural photos.
