Boston's Crazy Weather
These photos were all taken within a five-week period. Some just days apart. The last one was made last week. The first one of the kid jumping was just made yesterday March 16, 2011 at Harvard Square. This photo never ran... as it happens to a lot of our work. All were shot in the Boston metro area. Just comes to show you how erratic New England weather can be. All by Essdras M Suarez/ Boston Globe Staff photographer BEHIND THE SCENES: When it comes to newspapers weather IS news. So be it sunny, cold, wet, dry whatever it might be, the newspaper will cover it as if it were a major story every single time. I just do what I'm told... which usually is, "We need a page one photo for display." This usually means I have a couple of hours tops to find something. Thankfully once you get out of your car and start walking something that I find visually appealing happens to cross my path. TECH STUFF: Two cameras, one with a 24-70mm 2.8 and one 80- 200mm 2.8 with a 1.4TC. ISO 400- 2,500. Speeds 1/125th to 1/2000th of a second. WB usually Cloudy.
