How LB Students Can Rent Out DSLR Cameras During Quarantine

Has quarantine gotten you into a routine that seems to loop over and over again every day? If your answer is yes, you are certainly not alone. 

School and work are becoming trivial tasks, and your favorite show or video game has lost its pizazz. Things may seem bleak, but now is actually a better time than ever to pick up a new hobby!

One hobby that has been a go-to for LBCC students and many others has been photography. It is easy to get into due to the relatively low amount of expertise required to create enticing photos. Another reason why anyone can get into photography is the truly endless possibilities. You can shoot anything you want; from cats to landscapes to black-and-white closeups of food.

Now, there is one problem that can keep a lot of people from entering the world of photography; and that is not having a camera. Smartphone cameras have greatly increased in quality in recent years, but you just can’t get the same quality and variety of shots that you can with a real DSLR camera.

Luckily, LBCC is here to solve that problem. You can currently rent a camera from LBCC for the remainder of the term. However, you should act fast if you want to get one, because there are only about 15 left and you have to return them before the final day of spring term; otherwise, a hold may be placed on your account until it is returned. 

Fortunately, LBCC has been shipping the cameras out to students in only a few days with no shipping costs, and they send the return label along with the camera for easy turn-in.

To check out a camera and start snapping today, all you need to do is fill out this form.

All of the students that need to use them for a class have already received them, so don’t be concerned if you aren’t in one of the classes listed on the form.

Now that you know the opportunities that await in photography, go out there and shoot! 

You may not be able to go everywhere that you normally would be able to, but there are still a million possibilities for great looking photos if you have the creative eye, as well as the patience and motivation. Not every shot is going to be a masterpiece, but eventually you could find one.
