Nature photography by Notes Of Light, Atlanta

Snow Day

Atlanta gets a good snow about once every three years and this year we’ve already had two. Because its usually such a rarity, everything from work to school gets cancelled, and with that extra free time I get to experiment more with photography.

Everything is different when shooting in snow: lighting, colors, reflection, handling the camera, shivering — you get the idea. But for me it is a opportunity that doesn’t come around too often, so I enjoy it a lot.

I grabbed a pear to add some color to a few shots, setting it in different places, and I liked the contrast between the white snow and mottled skin.  For the photo in front of the barn I used a flash to reflect off the falling snowflakes, highlighting them and making them more noticeable.  Thanks for visiting, time to go sledding…
