First day of winter vacation

First day of winter vacation. It sucks a bit when the weather is almost as cold as I am old. If only I was 12 !.
A round of Dutch shuffleboard and a round of beer to bring in the New Year.

 

One week of vacation. Day 1 – it is -52C with windchill. My nose and cheek is still recovering from frostnip (low grade frostbite), and the whole week the temperature is predicted to by ‘extreme cold’. Drat – no working on trucks,skiing or fatbiking. I can’t take the cold like i used to.  Must be age ?.  School kids still only wear running shows, no toques (don’t want to mess their hair), and no winter pants !.

Today – some boredom. What to do all week ?.  Spent more hours surfing the internet, some useful research and plenty of mindless scrolling.  At least tonight dug out the camera and some studio lights, use me as the model :>

Used a now very ancient Nikon D700, Nikon 85mm lens and polarizer, two Paul C. Buff Einstein studio lights; behind the camera; circular reflector and 30% grid, and rear light has a 1×6 modifier with a grid. Hardest part was getting the focus – self timer, pose, click – check and adjust focus and repeat….
