The Ice Dragon

The Ice Dragon

You’ll be AMAZED at how this shot was done! Other photographers hate him for it! CLICK TO SEE THIS INCREDIBLE SHOT, YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU DID.   I really hate those click bait posts you see on Facebook.  Anyway, I digress…

Sometimes when the weather gets a bit too extreme for me, I like to do some research on new locations I want to photograph.  Other times, I just want to photograph something instead of planning.  I decided to get creative and try out something new, and I really like this shot.  It’s really simple in concept, but it took some patience to get this.

The magical blue, star-like background is what makes this so cool right?   It’s just a couple sheets of aluminum, and a blue light bulb.  If you get your object the perfect distance from the camera and the back ground, you get this effect known as bokeh.  I won’t go into the details, but bokeh has been defined as “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light”.  And with the foil all crumpled up, you get a lot of reflected points of light.  Add in a wooden carving of a dragon, and BANG, instant story. Or something like that.  Maybe I need a coin a cool phrase like BAZINGA or POP-POP.  Eh.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed a little behind the scenes explanation!
