Miami, Florida artists remain warm. California artists do not freeze. Artists in the Sahara Desert may freeze at night. Do Chicago artists freeze?
The Chicago artists are graphic designers, illustrators, painters (These guys will not paint walls, but they may create acrylic and oil paintings to hang on your walls.), photographers and sculptors. It is rarely necessary for graphic designers, illustrators, painters, and certainly not sculptors, to remain outside in Chicago’s, subzero temperatures to produce their art. As you should now realize, I have omitted photographers.
Some of the best, scenic photos are those with the sunlight shining on photographers’ backs. Sunlight shining on icicles and powdery snow can produce spectacular, specular highlights. Often, especially during Chicago’s winter, overcast skies will prevail during the day. In order to produce art, it will often be necessary for Chicago’s photographers to remain outside to catch the first glints from icicles and powdery snow. This duration can last several hours, thereby producing numb fingers and numb toes.
Photographers’ cameras will certainly freeze quicker than photographers will; cameras are metal. Batteries will operate sluggishly or lose so much of their charges that they fail to operate at all. (This is especially true in this era of digital cameras (DSLRs), which require most, if not all, of their features to operate via electrical charges. Some of the best, film, single lens reflex cameras (SLRs) have hybrid shutters. These shutters operate via electrical charges for speeds slower than 1/60 second, but operate mechanically for longer speeds. Photographers will use the longer, mechanically controlled speeds in SLRs when photographing bright scenes that consist of snow and ice.)
The Chicago artists who are most likely to freeze are photographers. When seeking that one-of-a-kind photo in Chicago’s, winter, below zero environment, photographers should be wearing at least two layers of clothing. Chicago’s artists do not need to freeze.
