Lots of snow in an alley behind my buildingI’ve temporarily lifted the focal length limit for this month due to historic snowfall. ¬†Popped on the zoom lens and got busy snapping pictures, although I can already see that it’s made me a little bit lazy in terms of getting things set up and thinking things through before I shoot.

I see far too many outdoor shots where the ISO is inappropriate because I neglected to change it after shooting indoors. ¬†And snow during the day just overexposes everything so it wasn’t necessary.

To counteract that I think I’m going to shoot manual for a while and get back into the check settings, compose, and shoot workflow that I had when I didn’t worry about focal lengths.
