Shooting in a White Out

I’ve done this and it is … entertaining? Over at Pop Photo, Stan Horaczek interviews Michael Perez about covering the Detroit-Philadelphia game on Sunday.

This made me laugh:

For all of the first quarter and most of the second quarter it was a near whiteout. The AF was getting fooled a lot. I was trying everything. I tried matrix focus, 3D, single point. If you get one little snowflake in front of that focusing point and the focus would go everywhere. There were a ton of white frames, a ton of dark frames, out of focus frames [laughs]. It was really, really frustrating.

You know, there was another option … focus manually.

Now, you kids? GET OFF MY LAWN.
