I walked around campus today to try to take pictures in the most awful lighting conditions imaginable. It was the perfect test for me and for my new camera.
- First of all, at solar noon the sun is only 3.1 degrees above the horizon. So there isn’t much light.
- Second, it was incredibly overcast and there is snow on the ground and on pretty much everything else. So pretty much everywhere you look is just white.
- Lastly, it started to snow pretty hard, so now anything that did have color is now white.
I did my best and this is what I got (click to go to flickr):
