So after Friday’s winter storm, Saturday dawned bright and clear so I loaded up three cameras and went to Hamilton. For these shots I really slowed down my shooting, one maybe two shots each place I stopped with the Rolleiflex. I carefully looked at each area, pre-visualized what I’d want the final print to look like. Using a Pentax Spotmeter V, I metered for shadows I wanted the most details in, then underexposed by a stop (Putting the shadows in Zone IV), focused, and shot. Then made notes on the exposure. It was basically like shooting large format (I did see a guy with a 4×5 out and about). I’m pretty pleased with the results.
