I recently rented the Sony A7C and went snowshoeing in the Sun Valley area. It was a short but fantastic time and I got a few good images to share with y’all too. This is Latitude Photography Podcast, Episode 102 for January 18, 2021

Today, it’s just me talking about a recent shooting experience I had. Two of them actually. I went to the Sun Valley area for some snowshoeing and to Bruneau Dunes State Park in Idaho.
To rent the Sony A7C and the Zeiss Loxia 21mm f/2.8
To have a grand time shooting it somewhere snowshoeing
Craters of the moon or
Northern Idaho, Kellogg area or
Sun Valley area To do it right after Christmas. Also, I was technically still in recovery from my health troubles I’d experienced the last four months of 2020, so this was a test of sorts for me as well. The Experience
Camera and lens were delivered just before Christmas, but as family was over I didn’t really get a chance to play with it until just before the shoot. Drove to my folk’s place, they live in the Boise, ID, area.
Continued the next day to the Sun Valley area, actually never got to Sun Valley the town, I just use that since y’all likely know where that is. In reality, we stayed in Bellevue and shot north of Ketchum. Randy Gemar joined me once again, you may recall he joined me to Unalaska Island last December.

Didn’t sleep well that night at all. Tuesday was mostly a wash. Tried to sleep in but didn’t really work well. As I was leaving that evening back to the Boise area I had to check out of the hotel. Made the decision to drive back since I was in no position to stay out late and then drive back feeling this tired. We had planned on heading to Sun Valley for some night street photography. I really wanted to test out this camera in those conditions. On the way back, I got the idea that I’d stop in and shoot at the historic Idaho State Prison.
Got back and rested up at my parent’s place once again and got home the next day to turn right around on Thursday to take the family back for New Year’s Eve. Drove out to Bruneau Dunes for January 1 shooting. Made it there at about 8:15, right about when the sun came up, but as I had already returned t
