Snowflake Shutterbug

In its perfect whiteness, before the snow gets mucked up with salt, sand and the usual drudge, start snapping photos of your winter backdrop. Dorothea Lange reminds us what an image can create for us with her simple observation. “Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.” There are no hard and fast rules for photography. Yes, time, patience and a bit of skill makes one master a technique and establish form but there has been a lot of amateur photography that captures a moment better than many a paid professional. The world is vast of wonderful images taken by those that just felt the moment and didn’t pass the opportunity up. So don’t sit idle today. Take heed to the words of my favorite photographer, Ansel Adams. “There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.”

Make time to bundle up with your snow boots, hat and mittens and hold that lens to your eye. Capture this amazing light, form and shape to hold this beautiful setting still. Otherwise, you can catch the next flight south. Annie.
