Thankfully, our self-isolation hasn’t been so isolated that we haven’t been able to get out for the occasional walk.
I had been out a few times with different film cameras and still had some undeveloped film from Before. I recently had five rolls developed, four of which I had scanned. As I mentioned before, I had a roll from my 110 camera which turned out to be cheap to have developed but prohibitively expensive to have scanned so I only had it developed. I hope to figure out scanning it at home soon.
Toward the end of March, we went out for a walk looking for signs of spring. I brought along my Canon EOS Rebel 2000 loaded with Kodak Portra 400. I used my EF 24-105mm f/4 lens that I had gotten with my Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. I’m somewhat amused by putting a fancy, new-ish lens on my cheap, used camera, but it’s a good combination.
As far as we can tell from being inside most of the time, we’ve had a delightful spring so I was glad to be able to capture some spring photos in our neighborhood.
Later in the month, we went for another walk not looking for anything in particular. I wound up taking some nice shots of an empty basketball court, murals I had not seen before, some building destruction, and a few other spring views.
I had a different lens for that outing. Less amusing but no less a good combination is the Rebel 2000 with my inexpensive Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lens.
I hope to post soon about the other rolls. I also hope we can continue to get out for photo walks since getting outside to do something creative helps manage dealing with being inside so much.
