The Adventure Begins

April 18, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

So last year some college friends of my wife decided to do a big trip to Yellowstone. This is was big news in my house since my wife had been trying to get me "out west" since I met her, and now that we had kids, it was even more imperative to her that we get out west for a visit. We live outside Chicago, so we don't get much in the way of geography here in the flat state of Illinois.  Well a few months back I made the big decision to sell a few of my priceless collectibles to fund a camera upgrade. At the time, I had a Nikon D7100, and a mix of crop and full frame lenses. But I wanted to go full frame and it was finally time. So I sold off my most valuable Phish and Star Wars posters and got a refurbished Nikon D750, as well as a Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 lens. I was really stoked about this and was itching to get a chance to use it. The first chance was through my day job, taking some board member head shots for my agencies website.  I have to admit, when I started doing these, I had no clue what I was doing, but they have slowly gotten better, and made a big jump in quality with this new camera/lens set up. But that's a post for another time. Back to the trip.

So I now had a new camera and two new wide angle lenses, I also picked up an Irix 15mm f2.4 lens for all those wide angle landscape shots I was going to get in Yellowstone. EXCEPT, reality set in and my wife and I realized, we might not be able to do the trip. So it was off....
