If you would like to fine-tune your winter photography skills, join me on Saturday, January 24, 2015 for a one-day Ice Photography Workshop at The Holden Arboretum in Lake County, Ohio. This is a popular workshop that we have conducted for more than 15 years.

The workshop begins with a slide program on winter photography at Holden’s Visitor Center. We’ll cover winterizing your digital camera equipment, the best camera settings for winter photography, fine-tuning your winter exposures using in-camera histograms, and specific tips for finding, lighting and composing great photographs of icicles, ice patterns, snow scenics, and wildlife in winter at the best locations in and around Ohio.

After the slide program, we’ll carpool a short distance and enjoy a short hike through Holden’s winter woods to Stebbins Gulch, a rugged gorge with 80-foot sandstone cliffs, frozen waterfalls, and picturesque icicles, if the weather is seasonally cold. We’ll descend into the gorge (knee-length rubber boots are highly recommended), shoot for a couple of hours, then hike out of the Gulch and return to Holden’s Visitor Center to socialize and enjoy a hot drink.
