Winter presents some of the most
Winter, Water & Ice is a one night seminar accompanied by a series of optional field trips exploring the challenges of photographing outdoors in the winter, with a focus on working with slow exposures of water and ice.
The evening seminar presents ways to tackle the specific challenges of winter photography, some tools to make the process easier, discusses controlling exposures, and shares some processing techniques to make your winter photographs really sparkle. An emphasis will be placed on the potential of long exposures with winter water and ice.
The optional winter field trips, open only to those who attend the evening seminar, will be offered on winter weekends (weather permitting), providing participants with a way to put in to practice the principals introduced in the evening seminar. Each field trip will be accompanied by an optional critique/review/discussion session approximately 2-3 weeks later.
is what photography is all about
Winter presents a totally different landscape to explore visually, filled with frozen water. Even when snow is not present, the rivers and oceans that abound and surround Nova Scotia are rimmed in ice, which presents a fabulous photographic subject
This field trip series focuses on both camera and image processing skills, but can be completed using only camera skills.
