When working with agencies there are particular requests that must be fulfilled, but this snow shoot was off the cuff and fresh. I used lenses I would normally not use and really wanted to show a lot of the environment freshly covered in snow. In short it was much more of an editorial style shoot than something you see in a typical portfolio shoot for up and coming talent.
We had to take several breaks and reset ourselves because when the wind whipped through it was brutal. Being on the banks of the Potomac River didn’t help the windchill factor.
Thanks for coming out and shooting, Mia! Below is the gear I used during the shoot and, of course, the greatest hits.
- Sony A7R II
- Sony Carl Zeiss 55mm f/1.8
- Mamiya M645 55mm f/2.8

- SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB SDXC memory card
