A Snow Day.

Richmond is just not equipped for large amounts of snow and, as such, the city shut down after we got dumped on yesterday.

I took a few minutes before trying to convince my two-year-old daughter that the snow was fun – she didn’t believe me, came crying back to her mother – to shoot a few images. What’s funny is that as soon as I got outside, I remembered what I’d been told about how snow lied to light meters, telling them that there was more light than necessary. The first Polaroid I shot was way overexposed. I had to underexpose two stops to get these to work. They’re unremarkable, but hey, they’re pictures of snow.

This one is actually exposed correctly as I shot it the night before, while the snow was coming down. The shutter was open for 8 seconds, give or take, at its widest aperture.

    Okay two things. One tell me you used a tripod, you surely can’t hold a camera steady for 8 seconds?? Second, I thought when I post about tonight I would throw a link to you…is that okay or would you rather I don’t?
