What an amazing day! It’s estimated that over 120,000 people marched for women’s rights on January 21.
And then we all ended up at Seattle Center.
I shot only film with a Canon Elan7ne and a 20mm f/1.8 Sigma lens, and a random variety of film stocks. I shot about 9 rolls. When scanning, I used Epson’s checkbox for color correction, but still had to try myself to do a bunch of color correction in Lightroom. It was an overcast day.
It’s hard to shoot crowds when you’re in them. I was very often looking for higher vantage points to capture the enormous size of the crowds. I should have brought along my extendable painter’s pole and this ball head adapter. I picked up the pole at the hardware store, opting for the 4′ one, that can be extended to 8′. It’s a very portable length, and 8′ is high enough. I could set my SLR on a timer and hoist it up. (Or, I can remotely control a GoPro or my Sony a7s, and shoot all I want while seeing “through the viewfinder” on my phone.)
If you’d like to see even more of my photos from that day, head over here.
Out of so many people, I didn’t see too many film cameras. I saw one Land camera, about 10 SLRs, and 3 Leicas. Lots of digital point & shoot cameras. I guess I thought everyone had ditched those and were just using their phones.
