Ice Storm

January 28, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

We got an ice storm over the weekend - never a good thing, but always a good photo op!  I had my son help me get this shot by holding one of my studio strobes below the branches so I'd be firing it straight up.  It's a 400w/second strobe that was about 2' below and set to 1/8 power.  I shot this during the early afternoon, but to get the dramatic lighting, I was at 1/250, 85mm, ISO200, f/3.2, with a 3 stop neutral density filter for minimal DOF.  The blue was created by setting a custom white balance.  The blue helped accentuate the ice and over all cold feel to the shot.
