A Focus on Frost

First Frost

Frost formations can be an inviting subject to photograph. One of the secrets to showing off these little ice gems is high contrast. The best way to get high contrast is through a good black and white conversion.

It is my opinion that winter is best captured in black and white because of the stark nakedness of winter's personality. Give it a try. Compare a color image with the image in black and white to see how the character of winter shines through differently in each.
