Default Snow Blocks

Just sknow blocks, nothing less, nothing more.



P.S. :
- cropping
- desaturate
- manual level correction
- burn tool on small areas
- sharp filter

Hi, just dropping by between a photo study. And what we learned last week;
Cameras tend to translate every scene you put in front of the lens, to the average 18% grey. It does not know if the scene is snow or a coalmine. And both photos will turn out grey at the end. Hence to get snow correct one should overexpose the scene with 1 stop or more.

I wish I had some of that snow here to capture for my homework.
Hm maybe I should move a 1000 km south ;-)

Yes, Matilde.

You have to overexpose when shooting at snow as well as at snow landscapes. : the amount may vary : 0.7-1-1.3 ...

No silver bullet though : the best thing is to try and see immediatly what happens.

ooh nice picture sergio!

cowboy.......i really like your picture of the macro flower......(the one used to show the flower gallery) i really like how it has a black background!
how did you set up the light to do that without showing anything in the background? Was it taken in the dark with a flash or lamp or something shining from behind? below behind? or did you just photoshop out the background (if you did VERY good job)
i like it must've compressed pretty well (a large area without detail)
tough to print though lol .....welll......a lotta ink at least

Vito.. The Flower was taken in studio on my "Macro Setup" I made it for close up shots the back is Jet Black none reflective Muslin, At 1/60 at f5, 85mm , Front curtan Flash, and I used a LED not a Halogen or incodensent light, reflecting behind the Flower, the trick to the backdrop not showing is, low flash, and keep your subject away from the backdrop in this case about 16 inches.
