15 Inspiring & Most Popular Winter Photographs

Every Winter I get so excited about the endless photo opportunities and the prospect of having snow and/or heavy frosts! Sadly this year we haven’t had any snow yet, but when I checked the forecast recently it said that snow is on its way – which is very exciting.

So, with that in mind – one of my favourite things to do is to plan my winter photographs – unlike in the summer, it’s usually very cold – so I try and plan everything I want to photograph beforehand, to make sure I spend as least time as possible in the freezing cold…

A great way to get my inspiration flowing is looking at some of my old/popular winter photographs – which I’m sharing with you today, so we can get inspired together!

Additionally – it’s always good to be prepared to process your winter photographs to brighten them up… Here are 3 winter lightroom presets we use to achieve a winter wonderland effect in our photographs:-

Winter Lightroom Preset

Blue Haze Lightroom Preset

Whipped Cream Lightroom Preset

10 Advantages To Using “The Sunflares Pack”

Advantage 1: Better Sunsets

A great advantage you get with The Sunflares Pack is you can create better, more powerful looking sunsets.

Below are two images that were taken at sunset, however we added the sunflares to them to increase the strength of the sunset – so they look bigger and more vibrant!

14253625027_74965c44f9_z

 Advantage 2: No More Dull Light

No longer do you have to settle for photographs with dull light, you can simply add a burst of natural looking sunshine to an image that has flat light that can look so much better  and exciting while still looking real.

14436566784_c90ec93306_z

 Advantage 3: Rainbow Flares

Adding rainbow flares is very easy with The Sunflares Pack. They can look amazing when applied to photographs that already have sunlight in them or photographs with natural brightness.

The photographs below are a prime example of what the effect looks like – the ideal place to position a rainbow flare is the bottom right/left corner of the image like we have done.

14437713355_e2b10d36a5_z

Advantage 4: Replacing Dark Areas with Sunshine

Another advantage to using The Sunflares Pack is replacing dark backdrops/areas with sunshine. This picture I took of our whippet lying down by the flower bed was pretty much “picture perfect” she looks great, composition is good etc but I wasn’t happy with the dark background in the right hand corner so I added a sunflare to it.

14397999906_a938ccd74e_z

 Advantage 5: Golden Hour Effect

The golden hour effect can be achieved using the “The Multiply Effect” which is setting the blending layer(s) in Photoshop (or any other software program which allows you to add layers to an image, such as Gimp and others) to multiply.

“Multiply” is one of the darkening modes – so if you’re using any other program, set the layer to a darken mode if the word “Multiply” is not there.

Once you have done this, you may want to lower the opacity to make it less strong, this effect works very well for photographs with a white sky or photos which are looking quite dull and colourless.

The Sunflares for this type of effect are included in the Queen/King Pack with all sort of shapes and colours to keep things interesting!

14501010951_0c93d1727c_z

 Advantage 6:  The “Peeking” Effect

Don’t you just love it when the sun peeks through the trees, behind a door or through a window? It’s pretty irresistible! This effect is easily achieved with The Sunflares Pack, along with all the previous effects mentioned so far.

Here are two pictures showing you what we mean by the “peeking” effect:

14217631319_5a62a6061e_z

14534927665_d4da6f24f9_z

Advantage 7: Gorgeous Sunrays

To keep mixing up the effects, so the sunflares look unique, here is another thing you can do – daylight sunrays.

14365305603_602365fabb_z

 Advantage 8: Bright Portraits

14250683370_772fbfeb78_z

 Advantage 9: Beams of Sunshine

13673645463_f2d7be84ba_z

14213706943_534861a658_z

 Advantage 10: More “Feeling” In The Photographs

Not only do the the Sunflares improve the light in the photographs and make them look more beautiful, they also add a lot of atmosphere and feeling to each picture. You don’t have to wait for the perfect moment, with The Sunflares Pack you can take the moment and make it perfect.
