OK after months of seeing the above LeRolls shots and trying to get to that level of artistry I think I have come close with a shot. I'm in Minnesota so it won't be a gal by the water this time of year and never as good as his. But I want to get to the level of epic good taste, clean lines and elegant beauty to tell stories the way he does. And for a simple 2 flash shot in front of the white board in our church conference room I'm really proud of this one!

Nice! Well lit, sharp, and it definitely tells a story. No need to shoot by the water. I'm sure you could get some nice portraits outside with the snow and the trees. The effects of winter can add a lot of atmosphere to an image. Or maybe take an image of someone next to a cozy fireplace. There are always options.

Met up with a lovely Ukrainian model this morning and even though she was almost an hour late we still got some nice shots and I hope to work with her again sometime.

I got a picture of a fox today too...

K-3 and DA*60-250
ISO 400, ƒ5.6, AV

After many attempts to find this fox, and many miles driven, I finally got some fox images.

I hear you, and well done! Hope I run out of snowflakes soon but been playing with them lately. Shooting manual but now really want a macro slide rail. I was able to focus stack a few shots on one flake. K3 with macro 100mm f2.8 wr and1.4x tc and Pentax AF160FC ring flash.





Ice Social this weekend and lots of chainsaws carving ice downtown the next couple of days, would like to make it down there to get a few pictures.

Agreed! Very crisp and clean shots of a cute fox.

This was the only fox I got to hang out with today.

Got no fox, got no lovely young woman, will you settle for a saint? The old window glass though which this was taken claimed some IQ

These are nice shots, Cold Iron, but I do wish you would tell us how much they are cropped. Flakes do vary considerably in size, but my feeling is that your photos are probably only about 1/4 of your original frame (~6MP out of the K-3's 24MP)...

Your pretty accurate, about a quarter crop at least and they were very large flakes. Next year will hopefully move up to a 4x or 5x microscope objective for a lens.

Have you ever considered getting a dSLR microscope setup? I bet you'd get up to some really interesting work!
