We’ve had our first major snowstorm of the year, and it was a doozy (to use a technical term). More than a foot of the pretty white stuff, most of it now melted. So, I thought I’d photograph the transition from autumn to winter–what the land looks like after harvest but before fields are covered in snow for the duration of the winter.
I took all the photographs, driving and stopping, up the East Beltline through Rockford, Cedar Springs, and Sand Lake to Howard City.
I used the same brown-hued tone for images in Sand Lake (above) and Howard City (below). I wanted a consistent look.
The preset I used is one created by Patrick La Roque, a photographer from Quebec. The look of this set of presets, like this one, is inspired by instant camera Polaroid films from the 1970s. It’s soft, with compressed tones and strong grains.
Finally, two images of a field with some green in it. The last one, which is also the cover image for this post, is my favorite from the day.
