Experimental – Snow Scenes

In this Experiment, I will coat the landscape with a heavy frost (duration: 2 days). Then, I will add a thick layer of snow (duration: 1 day). Next, I will illuminate the scene with approximately 32,000 (or maybe more) lumens per square meter of sunshine, and quickly photograph the results in sub-sub freezing temperatures.

I will run the photos through a ‘filter machine’ called Topaz Studio. The experimental results are as follows:

ice snow

Rose Hips coated with ice and snow – no filter

Rose Hips with a spikey (spiky) filter

Rose Hips with a painting filter

Rose hips with a flow filter

Tall Grass covered in ice and snow – no filter

Tall Grass with a spikey (spiky) filter

Tall Grass with a line filter

Experiment Conclusion:

  • Filters are a great way to alter a photo and spend time indoors – out of the cold.
  • Winter has arrived a bit early here in Alberta. It is warm and dry in Arizona. While I am glad I had the opportunity to experience this ice/snow storm, I’ll be glad to finally head south for a few months in the New Year…

This week’s WordPress.com Photo Challenge is Experimental.

    I’ve never used any of these filters but you sure came up with some interesting results. It’s good to experiment!
