Behind the scenes photo below

We were very lucky on this fashion project. I knew there would be snow on the ground, I did not realize it was going to be snowing on and off all day, a real gift for the shoot. This was shot in Wolcott, Colorado for a fashion client.

The Gear:
Canon digital camera set to 160 ISO and using 1/160 second shutter speed with a
