Ice Storms

Posted: December 11, 2016 in Uncategorized
Ice storms are hell on the people that have to deal with them, power may be out in homes, driving on the roads is treacherous, power lines have to be fixed, trees and plants damaged, but they sure are great for making artistic photos. Two images shot with a black fleece cloth in the background, one with a white background and the last just the natural background. I used the backgrounds on the first three to eliminate the cluttered that was in the backgrounds. Fuji DSLR with Tamron lenses on all shots.

    Mike, beautiful images! Just curious, which Fuji dslr did you use?

  2. Stanley Kron says:

    Mike, love the images. How far behind the subject is your background? How far in front of the images is your lens?

    • Mike Moats says:

      Stan, probably about a foot behind, and have no idea how close the lens was to the subject, to long ago to remember those details.

    Partial to the black backgrounds – but all lovely.

  5. I like your choice of background colors, really help set of the images.

    Mike, these are GORGEOUS! I can’t believe I’m saying this, but now you’ve got me wishing for an ice storm! 😉 Seriously, what a great tip – using a background. Why didn’t I think of that??? Thanks for all the ideas you constantly give us. I’m definitely seeing my work improving as a result!
