Upcoming Meeting and Just for Fun

JP Cropped SmallThis Wednesday night, John Pennoyer will give a presentation, “Winter Light – Winter Photography”. This will cover all aspects of winter photography and will include staying comfortable in cold weather. I am hoping he can tell me how to keep my fingers warm. Having set an assignment for February that includes winter photography, I thought I should get out there myself. I prodded Bryan Leonard into meeting me at Birkmose Park last Tuesday night to get a shot of the crescent moon. It was -2°, not including the wind chill, and after experiencing difficulty operating the camera with gloves and mittens, I worked bare-handed until I had to quit.  It didn’t take long!

Just for Fun – Making Snow

While prowling the internet, I’ve found a couple of tutorials over the years on how to add falling snow to a photograph. For some reason that appealed to me more than going shooting in sub-zero weather. In the warmer environment of my little office/studio I gave one a try. There are a lot of steps, but they are clearly illustrated, and I liked the outcome.  Snow tutorial link  Here is a before and after.
