As the snow started to fall on christmas morning I thought to myself, aww, thats nothing. Surely this won’t amount to anything! Only to discover the following morning that the world was covered in a powdery white blanket. So I did what every self respecting photographer did that day and went out with my camera for a while to see what I could capture. I ran through a roll in my Hasselblad only to later discover I overexposed the whole roll by two and a half stops but did manage to salvage them in the developing process. I also took a number of digital snaps as well and a few of them came out nicely.
I had fun working with such a low contrast subject and the image above ended up being among my favorites which seemed to work well as a wallpaper image. I can admit to a fair amount of delicate retouching to get the balance of grey and white on the verge of being totally blown out but I am happy with the result. I hope those of you not totally sick of dealing with piles of snow around you find a place in your mind to enjoy the beauty in such a gift from the skies.
I appreciate everyones ongoing support and I look forward to showing you what I have been working on and I can’t wait to move forward into a great new chapter in the world of 50ft. See you next time!
