Snow flakes the size of cars - well maybe

January 20, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

A drizzly day turned into this winter wonderland of snow as the temperature started coming down unexpectedly this last Sat. I really wanted to show how big the flakes were and the three dimensionality of the scene. It was all B&W anyway so I converted it. This shot was made at ISO 1600 at 1/160 of a sec. at f8. The light was starting to come down which made for the high ISO. The Nex-7 and the Leica 50 f1.4 performed wonderfully. Since I have the fringing turned up to high it was tough to figure out what was sharp and what was not. At this distance and at f8 I was looking to get as much in focus as I could. Locking the lens at infinity was not going to do the trick as I wanted the foreground and the large trees to be as sharp as possible. I think it worked out. I made a print on Epson Cold Press Natural which is really nice.
