Mark Tests My New Remote Cable Release in the Snow

Here I am in snowy Ohio and I didn’t pack boots to come out here for Christmas vacation. Must have been lulled by all that Spring like weather we were having in December.

Mark is the guest blogger cause when he got home at ten Saturday night he  showed me a photo he had taken with his phone of the Christmas lights in the snow.  I asked him to go back out for me and take one for the blog.

So he took out my camera(Canon 5D with a 50mm lens)  and the new remote cable release that just got delivered via UPS and it was set at  ISO 400     f.1.4.    1/60 shutter.  I thought the result was excellent . First time using a cable remote and now he knows how to reduce camera shake.  Tripod in the back of the freezing car and no way we’re setting up unless the snow stops falling.

Thanks Mark. Maybe tomorrow night I will borrow Erika’s boots and trudge around in the snow.

  10. That was quite a snowfall. We’ve had nothing to even approach that — yet. Great effect with the lighting, though.
