When the weather sucks and you still go out but are not out

So, I love just going out and trying to find opportunity for image creation. I don't always succeed and at times I can get on some peoples nerves. By some people I mean my wife, whom I drug out with me today in 15F (-9 for the rest of the world) temperatures but we ended up at a coffee shop in downtown Columbus. Slim pickings for subject matter - unless you are like me and get right up in the wife's face while she is touching up her makeup!!

We are over due for a photo shoot and we have an idea...but there I go just imposing my lens against her will. She ultimately wins, but she is a fair and gracious dictator and gave me permission to post any images from today as I saw fit. I joke and kid, but she really is a great sport and supportive of me. :)

Today, I let her pick the kit I went out with and she decided on Fuji!!
So kit for today is the Fuji X-E3 and Fujinon 35mm f/1.4R. I used my custom built film simulation of Kodak Panatomic-X 50. usually at base exposure, but sometimes I boosted exposure compensation to +0.7 or +1, depending on how I was feeling about it.

Just having fun and experimenting. Having that freedom is very liberating sometimes, especially if you are like me and shoot a lot of stuff to spec, you don't always have the time or liberty to deviate from the agreed to deliverables!!

Anyway, without further ado....the images!!

Now into the brow, lash and eye lid!
