I’m not worried about it. If need be, I can just sit down or rest someplace and just review my shots whilst taking it easy. The meetup won’t be as bad as the last one, because this time we’ll be going to the Distillery District for the Lights Festival. Meaning there will be places for me to sit down, for sure. The thing is, the cold isn’t calming down. It’s still going to be chilly.
Okay, technically it’s not Antarctica-level. But it’s not exactly Vancouver-Winter climate either. I may be over exaggerating a bit, but if you were someone who doesn’t live in Toronto (or Canada), you would say the same thing. But it’s a big deal for me since I’ve lived my whole life in New Zealand. I know what you’re saying, I could just wear thicker clothes and dress more warmly then I wouldn’t be that freezing. If only it were that simple.
But the meetup was absolutely fun as always. We got to see and shot a lot of pieces of art that were as bright as Martha Stewart’s house during Christmas. There were all kinds of work on display, and they were bright as hell. To us, it was a gold mine for night photography. To me, it’s the same thing, but just with "God damn, that’s bright" added in.
So instead of the usual photography we’d get up to, we experimented a lot with high ISO and low aperture. Each piece and location required different variations of the ISO and aperture depending on the amount of light that was available in the area.
