I want to thank Jenny for joining me as I took a dip in the fountain of youth that is my old college town, Athens, GA. There aren’t many things that I enjoy more than testing a lens, and by that I mean hopping in the car with music, a general photo location, and of course snacks along the way.
Today I got to practice a new photo technique, played Frisbee on North Campus lawn, and ate a burger and fries with a gorgeous friend while discussing crazy Game of Thrones fan theories and lore. 😀
I set the intervalometer (fancy word for timelapse) on the camera and it managed to take a few interesting shots! Frisbee is pretty much what I did every day between classes. It brings friends and new people together in this technological age of loneliness!
I also managed to take a few non anamorphic photos. One of my favorites. It was blazing hot in Athens as usual. Thanks to the Athens Botanical Garden for being such a good (and free!) place for students and photographers.
Why an anamorphic lens, you ask? Because it can produce an image/movie that is the same aspect ratio of all my favorite movies. 2.39:1 The images when corrected and edited (since I’m basically free lensing it right now) fit the 21:9 monitor I use quite nicely. More to come!
