Photo of the week 4/1/2017
April 1, 2017 by Bryan
While we were in Sedona it started snowing so I stepped out of the cabin to photograph the newly fallen snow. When I came to the window, Jamie was holding Silas and he was waving to me.
In order to get this shot, I over-exposed by 1 and 1/3 stops. This allowed the bright lights in the background to become even brighter while allowing the back lit subjects to appear normally exposed. This is because I was using evaluative metering that looks at the whole scene. If I used spot metering, I could just point the center at the subjects and half press the shutter to lock in the exposure.
I was standing outside in the snow when shooting this and I actually shot it quite crooked but fortunately rotating photos after the fact is very easy. I like the framing that the window ads as well as the feeling of looking in from outside. Maxx is just a dim shadow in the lower right.
