Here are some more creative photography ideas for the winter to check out. Today we talk about capturing falling snowflakes, photographing frost, and wintery bokeh.

Shooting falling snowflakes: photographing snow as it falls is a great way to capture some unusual drama and mood. Your camera settings would depend on the intensity and the speed of the snowflakes. To accentuate and emphasize snowflakes as they’re in the air, a telephoto lens might come in handy because the distance between you and your main subject would be generally greater than with a short lens, thus there would be more snow in the air in between. If the snow is falling heavily however, that could be too much of a good thing, so try a short lens then.

Also try throwing in some low, soft flash light as well. This will help make the snowflakes closest to the lens look bigger and create a nice effect.

When shooting falling snow, you might wanna switch to manual focus cause it would be hard for your camera to focus on something automatically with all the snow falling in between.

If you’re standing in the open air, make sure you protect your gear, with some improvised plastic bags or an umbrella, so it doesn’t get damaged.

Capture frost: during winter frost is almost always available especially in the very early morning before the sun is out. Utilize this for your advantage and go create some unique photographs. Naturally incorporate frost into your frame, or go for some creative abstracts. Experiment with angles as well as front, back or side lighting to see what is best to capture some sparkling frost. Also experiment with different backgrounds, since frost is mostly translucent, different backdrops might have different (and interesting) effects on your final results.
