Is it even winter, if there is no snow?

These are two of the questions we were trying to answer at this week’s after school photo clubs – as photographing winter was the club’s theme. We were talking about how to photograph these grey winter days when the nature is so different from summer or spring, and how to show that it is winter outside when there is no snow or frost.

To inspire the children, we showed them some photographs by famous photographers like Peter Marlow and Jean Gaumy.

The children learned how to take a black and white photograph on their Nikon Coolpix W150 Cameras.  This setting can help us to show aspects of nature as moody and wintery. They also learned how to use the close up mode to capture details of nature and create with colours, textures and patterns a winter scene.

The children were looking for different subjects such as barren trees, fallen leaves, children with coats and cloudy skies to show that it is winter time.
They came up with some really creative ideas and captured some brilliant moody photographs of winter.
