A Mere Shadow of Myself

May 29, 2024

I have shot with two cameras for several years. I keep my 70-200 on my right shoulder and my 24-70 on my left shoulder. It took a long time for me to build up enough equipment to do that. I remember how happy I was when I could finally afford to buy two professional-level camera bodies. People love to ask me why I do it that way instead of just changing out lenses with one camera body. I do it mainly for speed, meaning, it takes time to change lenses out, and on certain assignments, especially with news and sports, you can miss the money-shot while you're changing lenses. Plus, the constant changing of lenses allows more dust to get inside your camera. 

I use vertaical grips that have a shutter button on the side, which means the shutter button on my left side is always resting against my hip, and likes to take it's own pictures. Everytime that I'm shooting, I usually come away with about a dozen or so shots of the ground because of my hip. A few weeks ago, I came home after working in Taylor County and downloaded cards and found these. I thought they were pretty cool to be an accident. 

The bottom picture looks a little phallic, but I promise I'm not happy to see you, HA!
