Today’s featured photo of the day! Winter

Here is today’s featured photo. For the rest of winter, I am featuring my collection of frigid photos! Here is a set of photos from a January sunrise at the former Westgate Golf Course which for years was on Ridgeland Avenue between 135th Street and Alan B. Shepard High School in Palos Heights, Illinois! Date –  January 1982.

Westgate Sunrise tele-extender.png

First photo taken with a zoomed in photo with a Vivitar 70-150 zoom lens and a 2x tele-extender zoomed in at 150 mm x 2 or an equivalent of 300 mm, filter=polarizer, Aperture=22 f/stop, shutter-speed 1/1000th second. The sunrise is darker because of the use of the tele-extender, but it is a nice shot!

Photo taken with a Nikon FE camera through a Vivitar 70-150 zoom lens (without the x tele-extender) zoomed in at 150 mm, filter=polarizer, Aperture=22 f/stop, shutter-speed 1/1000th second, loaded with Konica Fast ISO (ASA) 400 Color 135-20 Negative Film processed with C-41 Processing Chemicals, and a Type C Print using the RA-4 enlargement paper process, onto a 4X6″ semi-gloss print.

FACT:  You lose 2 full f/stops by using a tele-extender, which zooms in twice as much, doubling the capacity of the zoom lens. If you use one, the photo will get that much less raw exposure to light. 

See you tomorrow with another cold and frigid photo of the day!!
