Week 33, Day 238, December 17, 2009, "Community Carols"

There are some neat things going on in our Village.  It seems that they are beginning to do more and more as a community.

Tonight in 5 degree F weather many members of the community gathered together to sing Christmas Carols around the Christmas Tree.  It was cold, snowing, and people had smiles on their faces.  Hot chocolate and Christmas sugar cookies were passed out while the carols were sung. 

Nice going Groton! Keep up the great work.

Lessons Learned:
  • Tonight's photos were completely manual settings.  The auto settings would cause the shutter speed to be to slow.  I worked hard to try and balance the photos to optimize the snow flacks, and the lighting on peoples faces.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/30 sec, Aperture f/2.8, ISO 1600, Focal Length 170 mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, handheld.

Looks fantastic! I would swear the lighting was studio because of the perfectly black background, and the snowflakes are gorgeous!

I love it!! You managed to have a black night, to see the snowflakes, and still have a clear picture of the singers, it's great!
