Photography Road Trip – I’ve mentioned before that over the past few weeks I’ve been able to get out and do some day road trips with my friend, photographer, Garrett Winslow. It’s been really good for my photography (and me) to get out and shoot something different at least one day a week.
Photography Road Trip!
This past week’s outing landed on Thanksgiving. It was the perfect way to spend the day. Garrett’s family were all working, they had celebrated the holiday the night before. So, he and I decided a photography road trip would be a great way to spend Thanksgiving.
For our past few outings been shooting nothing but film. ACROS to be precise. The cameras I shot were mostly my M6 and occasionally a shot or two (or eight) with my Mamiya RB67. So this trip I decided to do something different and just shoot the whole day with digital; my Leica M typ262 and a Summicron 35mm lens.
As a backup, I did bring my Leica M6 body just incase I started to experience film withdrawals (yes, that is a thing). I was fine, and shot digital the whole. It was fine.
I woke up in Vegas around 6am and look out at the sky. The forecast had said we would be seeing rain all day long. We’ll that’s not what I was seeing. Mostly blue sky with a few white clouds here and there. Garrett stopped by my place around 8am. I threw my gear in his truck and we were on our way. Still, mostly blue sky with a smattering of clouds to give us hope.
As we drove further north we began to see the dramatic cloud formations that we were hoping for. This was going to be a good day for photography.
Road Trip – Finishing Up
We ended our shooting around 4-4:30, as the light was completely gone for the day. Also, that’s when the predicted rain decided to show up in full force. Yep, good time to wrap things up.
On the way back to Vegas we stopped at a truck stop off of I-15 outside of Vegas. Garrett knew that they were having a Thanksgiving Day buffet. Perfect!
A Couple More Photos
So, no film to list here. All digital shots. Even some color. (weird, huh?) Anyway, here are a couple more. Hope you enjoy!
