looking west…

I wanted to play a bit with this photo as I thought it had great potential…as you may have noticed I’m a huge fan of contrasts…so that is what you will see today…below is the original photo…this was taken last Saturday before I went the the Radar Runs…

sepia of course…I’m becoming a fan of sepia, it adds interesting colour to the photo, giving an aged appearance to the photo…

  2. Sepia is great for adding depth to an image.
    When shooting in snowy conditions it is sometimes a good idea to under exposure the the snow. This is because snow tricks the sensor into thinking it is brighter than it really is. this should give you nice contrast between different areas of snow.

    • I’ve not had a chance to experiment with the Nikon yet, but when I do I’ll remember this tip…thanks…I hope to take a ton of photos with it in the next month…I’ll see how I do with it…they won’t be snow photos, but at least I’ll be using the camera and hopefully begin to figure it out. my daughter and I were thinking of taking a photography class in the the spring as we both have the same camera and neither of us knows how to operate it! 🙂

  4. I like the first one, but I am sure that it has more to do with what the image is, I love snow and I like to see it in its original state.

    • thank you Leanne…I can understand why someone who doesn’t see snow would like to see photos of snow…it does look rather pretty when it is fresh and clean and undisturbed…thanks for stopping by…
