Roll 4: Photographing Snow is Tough

As some of you may remember, in Roll 2 I posted pictures of the frozen Charles. I mentioned in that post that I wasn't entirely pleased with the results. Yesterday it was snowing and I decided to try redeeming myself. I failed.

I took a walk in the Fens, and brought along a roll of Ilford Delta 100 (I figured with this much snow, it's practically black and white already) I am not sure whether it was the time of day, the film or the fact that I shot B&W, but most of the frames have no contrast. Next time I will wait until later in the afternoon, and try and capture some more interesting light. Or perhaps I will shoot color. If you have any thoughts or suggestions on photographing snow, feel free to frop a comment below.

Anyhow, we have a blizzard on the way to Boston so I will try this again soon.

For now though, here are the couple frames from this roll that I liked (the snowman is by far my favorite, he has a great Toupée):
