Showcase: March 2017
White Out! By Harry Lichtman
“My perfect winter day includes big snowstorms and turbulent weather since the chance for dramatic images increase. Bluebird winter days can be a bit boring for my style of photography. Wind-driven snow produced this slightly abstract image, as the sun broke through high clouds to help backlight the snow. I sought shelter in a tree line to protect me from some of the wind and shot through an open field. I experimented with different shutter speeds to blur the snow while still rendering the trees sharp. The streaking snow simplified the scene and allowed the textures and lighting to take center stage and create more of an emotional impact. This image was captured in New Hampshire’s Crawford Notch, where high winds are often tunneled through a glacially carved section of the White Mountains.”
Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM. Exposure: 1/45th sec., ƒ/13, ISO 100.

“Japanese whooper swans make head bobs, pirouettes and wing flaps to invite others to take flight with them. When this swan took to that behavior on the white snow while showing both its yellow and black beak and the back of its spread white wings, I instantly got that goose-bumpy feeling that comes with capturing a winner.”
Nikon D800, AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR. Exposure: 1/1000 sec., ƒ/7.1, ISO 250.
