Kenosha—First Digital Photos

Some of my earliest digital photographs were exposed in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

In Novemeber 2008, I’d traveled to Chicago to visit with photographer Chris Guss and attend the annual Beecherfest railroad slide program.

At the time I was exclusively using film to make photos. Chris lent me his Canon EOS 50D and we spent several days in northern Illinois and Wisconsin making photos.

We stopped in to Kenosha, where we traveled on the streetcar loop and made photos of the vintage PCCs.

I exposed this view using my 100-400mm Canon zoom fixed to Chris Guss’s Canon 50D.

It was almost a year before I bought my own digital camera, and 18 months before I invested in a Canon EOS-7D.

Digital Dawn—November 8, 2008

On November 8, 2008, Chris Guss lent me his Canon 50D and we explored the greater Chicago rail scene making photos.

It was one of my earliest experiments with digital photography.

I made this photo of Chicago Metra commuter trains tied up at Kenonsha, Wisconsin.

About a year later I finally acquired my first digital camera.
