Shanghai Snow Day

A couple years ago I got this shot of Casey in Burlington Vermont. When I saw the snow coming down I thought of it and decided I could get some shots of some unsuspecting locals dealing with the snow. It never snows here. My friend who has been here for 10+ years said he has never seen snow like this. I broke out my boots and set up my Canon EOS 5 with a Tokina 11-16 and Yongnuo YN560-III Speedlite flash on. What's interesting about this set up is that the EOS 5 is a full frame camera and the Tokina lens is for a cropped sensor. When you have the lens on at 11mm you can see a heavy vignette. But when you zoom in at about 15 you loose the vignette and have an ultra wide shot. I started in my hood around Lujiabang Metro station and made my way over to a new film developing spot on Lao Chong Qing Lu that can develop in 2 hours. This was the first time I ever shot a full roll and got it developed the same day. It was pretty cool to see film photos the same day I shot them. Anyways enjoy the shots of a rare snow day in Shanghai.
