Photography - Chicago Blizzard - Fringe Focus #1

I’m no professional photographer, but obsession was indeed strong enough to risk life and limb and venture out into the blizzard last night. With nicknames like “Snowmagedon”, “Snowpacalypse”, “SNOWMG”, and “Snowtorious B.I.G.”, you would be expected to stay indoors. I threw on a lot of extra clothing, and went out in hopes that I wouldn’t break my camera. Some of these shots turned out alright, so I thought I’d share them here.

Some of these photos are available as prints! You can get your hands on some by backing my Kickstarter Poster Project! (Which also includes 6″ photo prints like these)

Even with the tripod at full height, it was often buried up the middle in snow. By the end of the night my viewfinder, and rest of my camera, had ice packed all over it. I believe I saved it with paper towels.

The images above all link to my Flickr as well.
