I am back from our Digital Photo Destinations trip to Greenland and the Arctic. The trip was awesome and we were in the Arctic for an historic event. The extraordinary decline in Arctic sea ice during 2012 is finally over. Sea ice extent bottomed out on September 16, announced scientists at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) on Wednesday. The sea ice extent fell to 3.41 million square kilometers, breaking the previous all-time low set in 2007 by 18%–despite the fact that this year’s weather was cloudier and cooler than in 2007. Nearly half (49%) of the icecap was gone during this year’s minimum, compared to the average minimum for the years 1979 – 2000. This is an area approximately 43% of the size of the Contiguous United States.
NEW TRIP ANNOUNCEMENT
2013 Iceland Adventure – Auroras / Night Photography & Glaciers / Ice Caves – Plus Aerials
March 14 – 20, 2013
Limited to 14 Participants
Price TBA (includes travel, room, and board in Iceland)
Instructors – John Paul Caponigro / Seth Resnick / Ragnar Th Sigurdsson
2013 is a super year for auroras – a twelve-year peak. Join us for northern lights, night photography, super-jeeps, hiking glaciers and exploring ice caves. This is photography workshop is like no other.
Digital Photo Destinations (Seth Resnick and John Paul Caponigro) join forces with Focus On Nature and arctic photographic specialist Ragnar Th Sigurdsson (arctic-images.com), a native of Iceland who has extensive knowledge in night photography and lighting on location.
Our special workshop is scheduled when the moon is nearly full and ninety degrees to the northern lights making conditions ideal for night photography. Imagine photographing Iceland’s glacial lagoon (Jokullsarlon) by the light of the moon with northern lights.
We’ll hike the south coast’s glaciers during the season when they are bluest and ice caves are most numerous.
We’ll also take super-jeeps into the winter wonderlands of the volcanic highlands.
Join us and you’ll think you’ve gone to another planet – but that’s the way Iceland is.
A limited number of seats are available for a one-day special aerial photography extension.
Starting and ending in Rekjavik, we’ll divide our time between the north coast’s lake Myvatn and the south coast’s Jokulsarlon (the glacial lagoon), with a foray into the highlands behind the glaciers. We’ll ride zodiacs, hike on glaciers, run under waterfalls, and 4-wheel through rugged terrain accessible to only a few. Our guides known the local terrain like few others do. (This will be John Paul’s sixth and Seth’s fourth workshop in Iceland.)
Creativity, composition, exposure, workflow, and post-processing are only a few of the topics that will be presented.
We’ll focus extensively on night photography – long exposure, flash, light painting and of course astrophotography.
You’ll get lots of guidance on site and reviews of your work off site.
Get ready for a non-stop week of making images in a breathtakingly beautiful landscape!
