quick: hello friend



any suggestions on how to get little snowmen to stand out against the snow??? i'm pretty sure we will be making many, many more of these little guys and I can capture them well when i'm more close up, but would like to be able to see them from a little distance too.

You have to get down below the snowman's level and shoot up, so that Braylon's dark jacket or the brown fence is behind him. I saw a perspective of a snowman from that angle the other day and it was really funny because he was as small as the snowman in this picture, but because of the angle the photo was taken, he looked seven feet tall!

Hmm... that perspective would be fun, but I like seeing him [like how intimate my relationship is with this snowman? - he froze my hands! =)] with a snowfield background. I'm trying to shoot in manual this week vs. semi and its been interesting so far. =/

I am in love with this picture. It is so adorable! And props for shooting manual -- I stink. Does Lacy have online courses? I really, really need one. And hey ... way along any more tips on shooting in the snow. My kids are dying to get out there and build some.

Needs a shadow. Overcast day = ambient light. There is no lighting information to help describe the form of the object.

Other than that, you could always use some photoshop voodoo.
