Carvill - Out of Focus

I like this photo a lot. At the very least, there are two things you need to keep in mind when taking a photo: one is exposure, the other is focus. This photo is properly exposed. Sadly, the photo is way out of focus. I recall telling Carvill the picture will be blurry at the time. With my Canon I might have erased it right away, as it's very out of focus. I think the photo works as it is.

 

Kodak Gold 200, shot at ISO 400 (essentially the roll is underexposed, but modern film is pretty forgiving). Remember you need to overexpose in snow -- your light meter will lie to you.
