Morning Frost Ponca Access

Winter photography is not as austere as it looks. There are plenty of subjects, I like to shoot frost as well as frost flowers or frost blossoms. Even though today was on the warm side, there was delicate frost to photograph.

To get these pictures, you need a cold night and to shoot early, before 9 AM most days.

Taking pictures of frost is good practice for wildflower photography. To get the best pictures you must control your exposure to avoid blowing out details. Preserving texture in flower petals is all about focus and exposure, and it is fundamental to great flower photography. Shooting in raw and underexposing a bit are good starting points.

Shot in Raw, Exposure Adjusted in Post
