Ontario-based photographer Michael Davies timed this impressive shot of his friend Markus hurling a thermos of hot tea through the air yesterday in -40°C weather near Pangnirtung in Canada’s High Arctic.
Macro shots of the air on a foggy night. This was tricky to shoot. A brighter light, or a flash would have helped. I also tried to shoot some video. I haven’t taken a closer look yet, but I’m hoping I got something worth posting out of the video clips I shot.
I drove down to the point to get some photos of the fog, and once I saw this street light and the shadows cast from the tree branches, I decided to add some more light by pulling my car up to the trees, just behind the little hill they’re on. It helped balance out the scene and added a complementary colour. (and this happens to be my favorite pair of complementary colours, which is why you’ll find them in most of my drawings and paintings, perhaps you’ll see them more in my photography, at least in light painting type shots where I have that kind of control)
