ice in the rough


Walking around a park one day I noticed I was not getting the grand shots that I wanted, probably because of my lack of sight but I was blaming the light. It was then that I remembered that I wanted to play at creating my own. Here are several detail images that I supplemented with my own light to make it interesting. These images were found by climbing off of the bridge I was walking on and onto the frozen lake/swamp. The ice was thinner and breaking up a bit around the beams so it created some really neat shapes.

Supplemental light from an off camera flash, usually at a 90 degree angle or more behind the subject. I used my nifty little flexible tripod thing (Gorillapod SLR zoom) as a light stand and triggered the light with Nikons CLS because I didn’t have my radio triggers.
