Evidence of Friday?
Two more snow images, another lesson in exposure. These were converted to B&W using Fujifilm’s ACROS film curve in Capture One. You can see that they’re not as cool as the last image. They’re also a bit gray – brightening anymore was creating hot spots. The better solution would have been to set the correct exposure in the camera, not afterwards.
We had a little snow a couple of weeks ago. Shooting snow is always interesting. The camera’s meter is aiming for an average luminescence of something like 18% gray so the images will be too dark unless you brighten them up. Also, depending on the sky, the images will often be on the cool side.

Early Morning Snow
Some dirty snow, from the same January 2004 trip to Brooklyn mentioned in the last couple of posts. Notice how the Dimage A-1 lens resolved the snow in the background into lovely circles of confusion.
Water Towers, Snow
Post-Covid, nasty weather’s been keeping me isolated indoors a lot. It may be back to the archives by tomorrow. In the meantime here’s another snow shot, of another snow storm, that was languishing in my backup camera.
That’s all for now, folks!
A few snow shots today…
The window of the Lyft was all fogged up…

After Saturday’s balmy mid 40º weather (F), Sunday started snowing again. The next few posts are all shot out the window of my apartment.
