Good day everyone. Honestly, ever since this virus started ramping up here in the USA I haven’t been in any kind of camera review mood, although with most people at home it’s probably a good time for it.
We are living in unprecedented times, going into uncharted territory. I’m still having a hard time believing what is happening right now. It’s really like a nightmare come true. I never imagined living through anything like this!
I’m posting today to say that I wish you and your families, each and every one of you, to be safe during this COVID-19 coronavirus crisis.
Do your best to be safe. Be careful with what you touch. Wash your hands often. Be diligent. Practice social distancing.
In addition to photography, I also work in healthcare. I am considered an “essential” worker thus I need to go to work every day. It gives me great anxiety but at the same time I consider it my duty. I see the escalation in cases here in the USA. This thing ain’t no joke. TAKE IT SERIOUSLY!
I also put a very short video up about it due to the seriousness of this crisis. I know some people prefer to watch videos and especially the younger folks, 20-30 year olds, etc.
If you don’t have to go out, don’t. It’s not the worst thing in the world to stay home now is it? I wish I could but I can’t. But if you can, do it! Stay in. Ride the storm. Perfect time to get reacquainted with your cameras and lenses!
Work on your photography techniques. Read the photo forums. Talk to your friends on social media or FaceTime them. Technology is a big help during this crisis. Social distancing doesn’t mean you have to be alone.
If we all practice good safety habits, we should all get through this together. The cameras can wait. Your life is more important. Stay safe, stay blessed. See you soon! -Sam
