This rather dramatic light level change seems to be only one of two that are in store for the Chicago area. I’m hearing either 1-3 or 2-7 inches of snow in the next 24 hours.

Just under-expose the shot by metering for the bright areas and letting the rest of the scene go dark. Be prepared.

The portfolio of this certified photographer reveals images that emphasize mood and composition. Their purpose is to present a feeling in addition to portrayal of person, place or thing. Sometimes that feeling is nostalgia; other times it is serenity.
Each photograph tells a story.
