Winter Waving

What looks colder than water splashing around ice and snow? Lake Superior can be a frigid thing. I’ve always been drawn to the opposite of the “spaghetti” style of shooting water (used often on waterfalls)… opposite in that by using a faster shutter speed, the water gets broken into particles and creates all kinds of […]

Nuclear Ice

Another photo that wasn’t overall super impressive for it’s own sake, but I really liked the one bit of ice that looked like a nuclear explosion. ūüôā¬† Shooting ice and sunshine is always fun, but difficult to get right when you don’t pay attention to pesky things like white balance. But it often creates opportunity […]

Rounded Corners

Download:¬†Rounded_Corners_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7451.jpg Thanks to being able to stand on the edge of a small cliff, this shot feels to me like it was taken from up in the air… this was on the tip of Black Rocks at Presque Isle in Marquette, looking South toward the main part of the park across a little inlet where […]

Change is Coming

That bank of clouds was actually moving toward shore at a pretty decent clip… I ended up not staying long past this shot, because I had to walk about two miles back to […]

Rooted in Winter

Download:¬†Rooted_in_Winter_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7424.jpg I’ve photographed these roots a few times, though I don’t think I’ve had a shot I’ve posted here before… I was tempted to add a bunch of clouds to the sky in this one… but resisted the urge.¬† This photo is a good example of when I like to use a lower camera angle, […]

Empty Spaces

Download: Empty_Spaces_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7413.jpg I think empty benches always look so lonely. It feels like they represent someone who gave up on waiting. The effect is amplified for me here with the overcast grey and the steady erosion of lakeshore.  Camera Settings Camera: Canon EOS 80D F-stop: f/13 Exposure: 1/200 seconds ISO: 640 Focal Length: 40mm

Pieces of Winter

DOWNLOAD:¬†Pieces_of_Winter_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7454.jpg Looking South from the edge of Black Rocks in Marquette’s Presque Isle (the frozen edge of Lake Superior)… I typically prefer horizontally framed shots, but a vertical framing allowed for more of the “pancake ice” in the foreground. While the camera is at eye level here, I’m standing about 30 feet up from the […]
