Photographer Manuel Palacios to Lead Two Winter Photography Workshops in March
The Adirondack Land Trust invites shutterbugs with an interest in environmental conservation to join a free, virtual winter photography workshop Wednesday, March 1, noon-1:30 pm with landscape photographer Manuel Palacios. Beginners and pros will find new ideas for creating impactful winter photographs. There is no limit to the number of participants for this virtual workshop.
Palacios will share his favorite photography techniques and approaches to winter photography—from special equipment needs for shooting in harsh and unforgiving winter conditions to finding ways to use the elements of the season to express a deeper connection to the landscape.
For those interested in applying lessons learned from the virtual workshop, Palacios will lead a free in-person session Saturday, March 4, 3 – 6 pm at an Adirondack Land Trust conservation site in Lake Placid. The field workshop is limited to 10 participants. Prior attendance at the virtual event is recommended, but not required.
