Even though we may not feel very friendly about our world at the moment, it’s still full of beauty and wonders. Photographer Eric Gross managed to capture a piece of this beauty at Dream Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. He photographed an otherworldly sight of “frozen waves” on the lake’s surface, and the photos are absolutely stunning.
Us at DIYPhotography always look forward to SmugMug Films. They are fun to watch, inspirational, and we get to discover some amazing photographers. This time, SmugMug features Russian photographer Kristina Makeeva.
Kristina’s photos are a unique, dreamy blend of fashion and travel photography. The latest SmugMug film follows Kristina on a shoot to southern Siberia’s Lake Baikal: the deepest lake in the world, frozen over for the majority of the year. The place is beautiful on its own, but captured in Kristina’s style, it becomes even more magical.
There’s something magical about soap bubbles, but watching them freeze raises the magic to a whole new level. In his timelapse Winter’s Magic, photographer Don Komarechka captured the process of soap bubbles getting frozen. And watching the ice crystals as they form on the delicate bubbles’ surface is as wonderful to watch, as it is difficult to film.
Even if you’re too old for cartoons (as if you can ever be), I’m sure you know about Frozen. In February 2018, this Oscar-winning story is getting a Broadway show. Photographer Andrew Eccles photographed the actors for Vanity Fair, and in this video, they let you take a peek behind the scenes of this photo shoot.
Christmas may have come and gone, but winter is only just setting in. And with Winter comes the frosty photos and similarly chilled subjects. In this video from Photoshop wizard Nemanja Sekulic, we see a way to give any object a frozen look. Fantastic for those winter themed superhero shots.
