Winter is here. | Daegu Photographer
Snow has not only fallen in Daegu, South Korea but it actually STUCK to the ground, this time. So this morning I literally jumped out of bed knowing that I was going to wake up to snow. I went and opened up my window and sure enough, there was about an inch on the ground already and more was falling.
I already knew I wanted to get that "snowflake" shot that I saw all over some of my favorite photographer's page last winter, but with me living in League City, Texas last winter….snow was not an option. This year, it is!!
Since I posted this photo on my Facebook page already, I have been asked via message a few times how it is done. So I will tell you what I did.
It really helps to have a great lens, preferably a MACRO lens i.e. 60 mm, since I do not own that lens yet, I opted to use my Macro Filter which thankfully I picked up in Atlanta a few years ago.
Also, you need a black glove, scarf or some sort of fabric with a dark background.
And more importantly you need patience.
So I went outside, threw my glove on the ground. Yep, right on the snow…and I walked away. I went and I photographed all these are great shots.
So I have no idea what kind of berries these are…but I absolutely adore bright red on snow.
Sidewalk on the side of my apartment building.
I Love what a macro filter can do…see those little hairs on the side of the leaf? I love those kinds of details.
I told you I love red on snow…=-)
Since I am a southern girl, this totally reminded me of cotton fields. But made of snow.
That leaf is struggling to keep that snow up, but he is doing it.
More "cotton" plants
A whole field of them!
After shooting all that I came back to where I left my glove and started looking closely… with just my eyes for one single snowflake that was as perfect as nature intended.
As soon as I thought I got lucky, I put my eye up to the viewfinder of my camera and I knew I hit the jackpot.
This one is my favorite.
Happy winter, Daegu.
