1 2 (gf took this out the window - i liked the color) 3 (maybe a little brighter?) 4 5 6 7 (leave tree branch or keep it? i'm torn) 8 (couldn't find a good foreground for this at all. did 2 loops. everything was so blah. ) 9 10 11 (i think this is the nicest pic of the set. not a single person. had to remove 2 park police that were up on the steps though) 12 (is the black circular base of the lamp post a distraction?) 13 14 15 16 (did a ton of work on their faces. damn snow was streaked all over. it's an injustice not to be able to clearly see the emotion on their faces. so moving) 17 snapshot of my parking lot - holy freiken snow (iso 1600 2.8 - the flash proved worthless with it snowing) 18 iso 3200 I debated for a while going out. The roads were terrible! Growing up in PA, I'm def not afraid to drive in deep snow. I am, however afraid of the idiot DC area driver crashing in to me. Everything turned out well. Very challenging shoot. Windy as hell... snowing hard. Was freezing my ass off and fighting an umbrella to keep the camera dry. Was trying so hard to focus in my head and apply what I've learned and the tips you guys gave me for snow. I think what seriously saved me today was #1 - shooting at least 2/3 stops overexposed and #2 - shooting full manual (something i'm trying to do all the time and stop using aperture or shutter priority) Give me some hardcore C&C. I may never get another chance to shoot something like this in DC again.
