We woke this morning to a very peaceful sight – flurries falling from the sky! My trusty photo assistant and I decided to bundle up. head into the backyard and try to capture some snowflakes on film. I think he’s trying to tell me that he found some in this picture
But how do you photograph a snowflake?? My rationale led me to put the camera on shutter priority with a quick shutter speed, reasoning those little buggers fall pretty fast. Through trial and error I also discovered that I’d need a solid background to be able to capture the tiny white speckle. Can you find the snowflake in these pictures?
The good news is I will have many more opportunities for practice between now and March – and that makes someone happy, as demonstrated by his “celebration”
