2 years ago, I had had a DSLR for less than a month, and was still investigating the mechanics of ISO / aperture / shutter speed when I visited the Ithaca Ice Wars competition going on downtown. I didn’t realize that this would develop into a full-blown addiction (Blog entry for December 12, 2010 / gallery of my photos from the event).
Fast forward to yesterday: new equipment, 2 years of knowledge, and an entirely different outlook on photography. I joined the southern tier meetup group downtown yesterday at noon and gave Ice Wars another go. The result? I like to think that there’s been quite a bit of improvement… especially in the area of composition.
Here are a few of the shots… more can be found in this year’s Ice Wars album.
