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 smartphone and digital 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 Ohio.

After the slide program, we’ll carpool a short distance and enjoy a 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 waterproof 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.
