A Chance of Showers

9:31 PM

So the Canon FD manual lens adapter came in yesterday and I love it. I've been fiddling around with the various manual lenses I've accumulated over the past few years. Most of them I bartered for at estate sales, others were given to me by older family members with a past hobby in photography. I'm all about shooting film but since I've been lacking in funds, it's hard for me to will myself to spend the money on getting the film processed and scanned, (though maybe I'll take a trip to Saint Anselm for free scanning...). Anyway, I'm so glad I get to put these nifty things to good use. I feel like it's really going to expand my photography. I have a few commissioned shoots coming up soon and I'm excited to see the ways in which I can experiment.

With all the heat, thunderstorms are really the one good thing that comes out of them. I decided to take a lesson from Miss Alexis Mire and place a towel over my camera (so I could pretend I was shooting large format) to get some nice rainy shots outside. I managed to snap a few shots, along with a few videos with the 28mm f/2 lens, without getting struck by lightening. Expect the video soon!
