Ice Abstracts


Water poured over ice

I’m finding the Ice abstract photography a challenge. Controlling light and reflections in photography is what makes or breaks a picture. Controlling the light when shooting ice is very similar to photographing glass, light from behind. The reflections though are another matter. You have way too many angles to control them all.  I tried to make sure the camera and myself  did now show, but let the others go. 

Ice and Water Abstract

 This last photo was shot at f/32 with very slow shutter giving it a little more depth of field and had the effect of smoothing out any area’s where the water was moving.
