Norbert Fritz is a self-taught photographer from Hungary. We first discovered his work featured in National Geographic’s Travel Photographers of 2017 Awards, in which he received first prize in the cities category. His work captures the abstract qualities of everyday spaces and places, from the mathematical symmetry in shadows cast on buildings to the intriguing qualities of geometric minimalism. Let’s have a look at what’s in his bag.
“To me, having a lens with a better quality is more important than an expensive DSLR body, because the light goes through a lens first; it has to be great in sharpness.” – Norbert Fritz
Canon EOS Rebel T6i
The updated version of the Canon 600D, 24.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor, ISO 100–12800
I use a Canon 600D. I like it because it is light, has enough resolution and makes amazing photos by natural light. This year I will change to a full-frame, but I’m also interested in medium format cameras.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM
50mm standard lens with f/1.4 maximum aperture for Canon SLR cameras, Lens Type: Telephoto Zoom Lens
I have a Canon EF 50mm f1.4 / Canon 100mm f2.8 / Canon EFS 10-22mm f3.5-5.6 / Canon EF 24-105mm f4. Right now, I mostly use the 24-105mm for taking street/abstract/architecture photos and the 10-22mm for ultrawide angle shots also for street/abstract/architecture.
I mainly use natural light and, if we’re talking about artificial light, I use the light of the environment where I’m shooting.
I have a small backpack. It is very loyal and comes with me everywhere I go. It is light and my stuff fits in it comfortably.
