AV 1/640 -2 f5.6 55mm ISO100 Pattern metering
AV 1/200 -1.33 f5.6 55mm ISO200 Pattern metering - I liked this one, rather than the one with spot metering. The bokeh with the pattern metering had the circles and the spot was just creamy.

AV 1/100 -1 f5.6 ISO100 55mm spot metering and the end of the storm.
We had an ice storm on Friday. The storm cleared out very quickly with "gusts" up to 25 mph. It was frigid (which, I've noticed, makes it hard for me to think ) and I was being pelted with ice crystals from the trees (although, it didn't hurt - I just had to duck. ) I only had to think for about 15 seconds about attempting to get something studio, tack sharp. Instead, I put the camera on constant focusing (AI Servo), for the first time, and attempted to not get blown into the pond. What I'm trying to say is, I did these this way on purpose - they're something that I've been thinking about - but they turned out better than I hoped they would.
I used Pattern metering on these because of all of the different elements involved with them and because they were TOSSING in the wind. I tried to get the bokeh with simple background that was farther away than my camera was to this weed and shallow dof.
Is there such a thing as "impressionistic photography"?
I'd love to know what you all think! See what it says just below? C&C extremely welcome - always!
