Great post and images. I think it was definitely worth you stepping out of your comfort zone, Gordon. Thanks for doing it and posting the results. It's inspirational.

It was worth it! Thanks for stepping out into the discomfort zone.

I struggle with overcast, which is what Seattle is most of the time. I can't complain, though, because overcast makes shooting pretty easy. No hard light, and I focus on tonality and shapes. When the sun comes out, my camera gets really confused, as do I. I have to re-learn metering for harsh lighting. I also dislike the cold and having stiff fingers. I notice that my mind can't appreciate my surroundings when I'm constantly thinking about how cold I am and where I can warm up. I end up with lots of photos of coffee.

Great images, I really like the coffee/music photo.
Winter photography is my comfort zone here in Northern Vermont. People on the other hand are definitely out of my comfort zone. The cold doesn't bother me, my hands stay warm enough with thin gloves when taking photos and large mittens keep them warm when not taking pictures. People on the other hand scare me more than frostbite!

And I thought I was the only one ;-)

The paint and glue is fantastic - looking forward to that portfolio!
