Nice series for sure. Your shadows and highlights both carefully exposed. Please share your tips with us.

Thank you all,

I want you to see these exposures as appendixes to Walter_S's thread.

http://forums.steves-digicams.com/la...ain-theme.html

I couldn't get enough of his first picture, getting the white out of the snow. These close ups (?) are made late in the day about a month ago. The snow itself served as a light source making the scenes less contrasty

I am one of the Single Exposure Men, with hood and all, so I make many, many exposures. Only a very few make it to a next life

On the texture: the light from the sun was very, very low and created mini shadows. "It's not a matter of camera; it's a matter of the photographers skills" it is said. Well, in this case the camera used was a full format camera with a sharp wide angle lens

That matters very much. The larger the sensor the more gathering of light. We've been struggling with (and enjoying) snow in more than one way this harsh winter

For more on the techniques, ask mtngal and Walter_S

Thank you

First of all - This is really a surprise. Torgny is inspired by my snow-shots. I am honored. Inspiration is found so many places and Steve's is one of my biggest source, looking at others photos, to learn and be inspired. Thank you, Torgny.
Now, I find your snow-cards inspiring! Beautiful set of pictures with lots of different shapes (I can see humanoid (femal!) bodies in 1, 5 and 6) and I just love the carved-out details in # 3 - the works of the wind.

Your number 6 is the perfect snow-picture.

Walter,

Thank you. Yes. I tried to lift up the sensual aspects of snow. And now it's fading away. Got to find new objects

It's just looking at #6 especially, I can't help thinking of some 'cosmic intellect' sculpting the snow, while having the 'adagio' clouds pass by...
