TWENTY-SIXTEEN


 

The year Plastic Battles launched. My very first shots were taken on my iPhone, but after a few weeks I dusted off my trusty Canon 40D and got back into the DSLR photography game for the first time in years. Unfortunately the 40D was destroyed on a late season mission and had to be replaced…even Mainframe, Scoop, and a gaggle of Techno-Vipers couldn’t team up to save her. RIP 40D.
