Tonight, Edwige and I braved the cold (8˚F) to photograph some skiers on the hill in front of The Cathedral of St. Paul. We have been waiting for enough snow to shoot our skiers and we finally got some this morning... about an inch.
I took advantage of some snow covered ice chunks (left behind by the Red Bull's Crashed Ice World Championship) to elevate my miniature skiers off the ground. I would have liked to shoot more scenes from different angles, but... it was just too cold!
Also, this is our first "official" shoot using the Nikon D7000 camera. The body is much smaller than my Nikon D2x and allows me to get closer to the ground when shooting horizontal (which helps eliminate unwanted distortion). I suspect I will be producing more horizontal images going forward.
If you look closely, you can see the tracks made by other skiers ;-)
