I traveled to New York last month with my husband. Because he was there for business and I was more of a stowaway, I had some time alone to explore. While I love adventuring with my husband, it was also fun to adventure alone.
I was able to meet up with a few friends that I have made over the years through photography. One afternoon, I met up with Amy Drucker. Amy is an amazing photographer and I have admired her work for a long time. It was wonderful to hug her neck and sit and have lunch together. She took me over to the Highline to adventure with our cameras. I had my Polaroid and my Hasselblad.
After I got home and scanned my roll from my Hasselblad, I realized there were times I took the same photo with both cameras. It was interesting to go back and compare what I chose to capture with each camera.
With the Polaroid, I am quicker to shoot without really thinking too much, which results in more photos that are the big picture or view.
With the Hasselblad, I was more likely to capture the small details.
And sometimes I captured the same view with both my Hasselblad and Polaroid.
One view that I don’t see that often was this one that my friend, Amy, took. I had my Hasselblad in my hands and the Polaroid at my hip. I would love to say this is my tourist look, but I also sport this look when I adventure Los Angeles.
What cameras do love to take with you when you travel?
