I’ve been to Quabbin Reservoir one time in the fall, a few years ago. We thought it would be fun to go scout/shoot it with some ice. Unfortunately, it’s warming up around New England, and most of the ice was gone, but there were lots of interesting formations on the shore.
Being a Cali boy, I’d never seen anything like it before. I could have stayed out there shooting abstracts for another hour, but we had limited time and had more stuff to scout. So much to see and so little time!
When I get back to Maine, in a couple days, I’ll go through all my Nikon shots of the ice, so for now you get to enjoy this iPhone version. Shot with the default camera app and edited with Snapseed.
I was playing with Diana Photo yesterday, and it combined a waterfall image with an image that had some clouds. This isn’t that image, but it gave me an idea. I liked the concept, but the two images that Diana Photo used, didn’t quite work for me.
I ended up taking two photos that I thought would work well together, and imported them into Union. By using the waterfall image as the foreground, I could set the blending mode to lighten, and only the brighter part of the image would show through. That made it easier to mask out the bits of the image that I didn’t need.
Next, I used Snapseed to make a few adjustments, including a vintage filter. Finally, I used iColorama to add a slight painterly edit.
