Icy Blue by FramedByNature Icy Blue by FramedByNature
Upped my snowflake macro game this weekend by introducing colored lights to the setup :nod: Still have a good bit of learning to do in terms of lighting, but with every shoot comes something exciting and new :) For this one, I had a regular light and a blue light backlighting the snowflake on a sheet of glass. If you line it up just right, you can get some facets of the flake reflecting the color while the rest of it remains white. Still had to adjust the white balance in post to get rid of the nasty yellow cast of the tungsten bulb, but that's why you shoot in RAW! =D The worst thing about these shots is the amount of cleaning stuff up you have to do in post. Lots of dust spots and scratches and fun stuff on the glass, I need to find a way to shoot on a more pure surface :P

The scratches, the scratches - ain't that the truth. It is amazing that they are there......in glass which in theory should only be scratched by diamond!.


I admire your efforts.

I am totally shocked, I also have a Canon 60 D and my pictures won't come out like this (maybe I do something wrong... haha), would you help me and show me what you do?! Wich Lense etc.?
Won't do exactly what you do, but I am very interested in why my camera, the same model, won't work like this! Wonderful picture I like it really much.
