Default Winter Shoosting (from 2003 files)

Winter Train and fence taken in almost the same location one on way out for hike and other on return trip.
Temperature was around -25c





This one was way to cold at around -35c, just ran out took picture and ran back in.



All pictures taken with Canon EOS 10s, on E100VS film and scanned with HP S20cxi

All pictures taken in the Algonquin Park(Ontario Canada) area.

Nostrils-glued-together weather!

I particularly like the photo of the sun (rising? setting?). You managed to meter it so well, which sure couldn't have been easy with both the sun and the snow beaming at you.

I have the feeling that the train picture is really good too, but it's so small. There are photos that beg to be big, and I think the train is one of them.

Keep those tootsies toasty.

Actually metering is even harder with your tongue stuck to the tripod

This was the first time I saw the LCD on the EOS blank out.
To get exposure I was using sunny 16 and camera set to auto bracket 0.5 and 1.0 stops over my selected exposure.

What's "sunny 16" translate to? My camera expects me to know what I'm doing. It expects too much, methinks.

Ah, you bring back memories of weirdness in my childhood. Why do kids insist on licking freezer shelves?

Sunny 16 translates to a shutter speed of 1/ISO at F16 will give proper exposure on a blue sky sunny day.

So for ISO 100 film you set your camera to the nearest shutter setting usually 1/125 and the apature to F16.
Or any combination of apature & shutter that comes to the same exposure.

Every box of film used to include a list of recommended exposures for those with no meters in their cameras
They still include the recomended manual exposure guide in some film boxes, Here is the list from the inside of the box of Kodak T400cn an ISO 400 film

Bright or hazy sun on light sand or snow 1/500 at F16
Bright or Hazy Sun, distinct shadow 1/500 at F11
Cloudy Bright no shadow 1/500 at F5.6
basketball/hockey,bowling 1/125 at F2
stage shows average light 1/60 at f2.8
stage shows birght light 1/250 at f2.8
school stage auditorium 1/60 at f2

Oh man am I ever dateing myself into the 50's & 60's when this was common useage.

Usfull info if your meter goes bang but the camera continues to work


As for why kids insist on licking freezer shelves and other metal objects:
I believe the answer is "I don't know"

I'm guessing sunrise for the one shot and it's a dandy.

Those aperture and shutter speeds were required knowledge in my collage photo classes, however, that was so long ago I'd forgotten them. I started to write them down when I remember where I was and hit control p...sigh...new at this tech thing. All this was just to way thanks for reminding me, they are a handy guide.

That is a sunset image, stopped and grabbed it on the way back from my hike while trying to get in before dark.

The sound of wolf howls when you are alone and it is getting dark makes you move faster
Heard them almost every night, but was never able to locate them that winter.

I uploaded bigger versions of the first 3, cause Barbara wanted to see bigerererer.

And here is one more, as I am having a little difficulty locating where I saved one of the original images. Will upload a new version when I find the cd I burned it to. Or horror of horrors I will have to dig throught piles of slides to find the original again.

Waiting for freeze up on Lake Simcoe

I had a 50 50 chance on the guess and oops. It just looked cooler than sunset...but maybe that was just the pucker factor looking at the snow.
A Dandy any way you look at it.

Now that's much better Peter. It's a beautiful photo that's got the look of both early winter and spring thaw.

Darn it all, but I know I have that rule-of-thumb list for exposures somewhere. In the closet? Bottom of the camera bag? I saw it recently...

Aha! Side pocket of the camera bag where I've put other things I wanted to remember. Yes, and there's my slide rule of reciprocals. I've been wondering what happened to that.
