I love photographing snow. Every patch of snow is different, because of every snow flake is actually different. The way the light bends and refracts off of the snow makes it so seductive that it can be challenging and rewarding. One of the best ways to make use of snow patches is to convert the image into a black and white.
This is up in the Crazy Mountains on a rather boring overcast day. But the clouds added one nice benefit and that’s shadows on the landscape. It’s real easy to have a definite black and white point when it comes to snow but finding that other little element that makes it interesting like fog, or mist or a shadow will bring out more drama. Something to think about this weekend while out shooting, especially if you have snow in your yard.
