So how do you know that the digital colour wheel is different try this – Open Photoshop create a new layer fill the layer with red, press ctrl-I or command-I to invert it the opposite color what do get?

metering modes – altering the meter on your camera only changes how the camera evaluates the picture. what is meter trying to achieve?

Who said photography was easy?

Who said photography was easy? Photography is vital in our societies. What if photographers didn’t exist? If you can answer that question well, then you’ll understand the incredible role which photographers play worldwide.

Day #46 for the snowflake-a-day project by +Don Komarechka

Snowflake-a-Day #46
This tiny gem was a surprise to discover, with simple chiseled details that are so mechanical in appearance it might be hard to believe it’s a snowflake! View large!

Small hexagonal plates are always alluring, but they are some of the most difficult to capture due to their size. Measuring less than a millimeter across, you wouldn’t be able to see any of these details with your own eyes.

This snowflake began as a column-type crystal, as many of them do in slightly warmer temperatures. This could be based on my geographical location and that many of our snowfalls originate over Georgian Bay / Lake Huron and begin as lake-effect snow that slowly moves over our region, taking a half hour or more to reach us. This lets the snowflakes evolve, entering into colder air that switches a column into plate-like growth out of either end. That’s what we have here: two plates connected by a center column.

The smaller button-like plate grew slower than the larger one, and when this happens (maybe the bottom plate was facing the direction of the wind to gather more water vapour?), it chokes off the growth of the smaller plate and it stays forever small. It may grow slightly thicker, but its overall footprint will never catch up to the larger plate.

It’s rare to see such pristine “ridges” in a plate snowflake like this, like the spokes of a bike wheel all pointing towards the center. It’s a common feature running along the branches of larger snowflakes but I have only seen that feature on a snowflake this small a handful of times. If we dial back the growth to the time when the spokes were forming, one can visualize that each corner of the snowflake was thicker than the rest of the sides, and this pattern stayed stable until all of the sides became the same thickness. Shifts in humidity and temperature account for this, but I can’t tell you exactly what those values would have been.

We also have circular patterns caused by the snowflake growing back inward to “fill in” the thickness of the plates. The rings in the very center are a perfect example of this, as the outer edge grows thicker, the inner edge can collect more building blocks and round out this edge as it reaches closer towards the middle. This is also happening faintly on the larger of the two plates.

Physics aside, it’s a thing of beauty that resembles a gear, the door to a bank vault or the lid of a candy jar. What do you think it looks like?

For more weird and wonderful snowflakes and the science that explains them, pick up a copy of Sky Crystals – https://www.skycrystals.ca/book/ - which also describes the entire photographic process in extreme detail so you can create images like this yourself!

Back in the day taking the picture was not the first step, with a film camera. The 1st step was to figure out what film you’re were going to put in the camera. As a digital photographer, we grab the camera and head out the door
