My way of celebrating holidays is to make fun of them.
Wearing a santa claus suit triggers weird reactions in people. Including me. I was SO
tempted to go to a liquor store and buy a case of beer and walk around with it. Or maybe go to the grocery store and wander around cursing "f*ck this sh*t f*cking snow f*ck..." under my breath. Sticking up a 7-11 would probably be going too far, though.
Shot out on the freeway using a radio remote. It turned out that the light was perfect; I wanted about a 1/10 sec exposure, and my light meter told me f/8 1/8. By the way, if you're ever shooting in snow, use an incident light meter not a reflected meter. Then you don't have to compensate for the brightness of the snow, it just comes out right.
