On Monday, for the first time in a while, I went across the street with the kids to wait for the school bus. It was cold but sunny, and there had been a light, fluffy snowfall overnight.
The kids began tossing snow in the air, which looked really attractive with the sun backlighting it. I was disappointed not to have my camera at hand, but conditions were the same on the next morning, so I did some clicking. Gotta make hay while the sun shines because it's been pretty overcast for the most part lately.
I took close to 4 dozen photos. I then kept whittling down the number: first to about a dozen that I liked more than the others; then to about 6, which I will include here. The idea is to come up with one shot that you really like, and, for me, in this shoot it is the final one of the following that is the best.
We began in our own front yard.
I took some more photos across the street while waiting for the bus.
This is my fave from the shoot. It looks great when I fill the whole screen with it. It's a crop as are some of the others. Never be afraid to crop in post processing, for unless you have the time and resources to set up a shoot painstakingly with just the right lens, it's almost a necessity in many cases to crop in post.
