Blizzard 2011

After Chicago got hit with its third-biggest snowstorm on record, 51.3cm (20.2in) of snow according to the national weather service, I headed out into the streets to take some pictures. Temperatures are expected to drop to -21C (-7F) tonight, with wind chills down to -32C (25F).

A New Frontier

About a year ago, I purchased my first cameras that shoot both still photographs and HD video. I now find video to be a liberating medium that will provide me with one more avenue for expression. To that end, I have decided to add a lot of video specific gear to my line-up, including this shoulder mounted camera rig that arrived Saturday and these professional audio accessories that arrived today.
