Ohio National's Victorian Holiday Village Photo Shoot (12/12)

  • Dec 12, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's join up for an evening Photo Shoot at Ohio National's annual Victorian Holiday Village. The village is comprised of about ten miniature buildings decorated in holiday style, strings of holiday lights, reflecting ponds, and a miniature colorfully lit train. The event is free and Ohio National would love to have access to our photos (a special album will be created for those who are willing to share their photos for free).

Bring a tripod to capture sharp photos, and try your hand at HDR.

Feel free to bring guests (especially kids) but I am not counting them in the RSVP if they are not bringing tripods.

As photographers we will want to get off the paths so please bring a flashlight to see where you are stepping and to avoid tripping on the many cables used for the lights.

Hot cocoa will be provided free of charge at one of the little buildings. They are also collecting non-perishable food items (no glass) if you bring something.

To avoid having us overrun the event with tripods there will be multiple sessions posted - please pick just ONE session to join.

Parking: park for free in Ohio National's garage - follow the volunteers directions.

Photos: let's save all photos in the same photo album titled "Ohio National Victorian Holiday Village (12/5-12/13)"

    I only lasted an hour in the cold, but I had a great time. My poor, frozen fingers! They did a beautiful job of decorating the place.

      I highly recommend buying a pair of work gloves from Home Depot or Lowes - the kind that are thin to protect your hands against cuts and calluses. They are thin enough to allow you to work all the buttons on your camera but just enough added protection to keep your hands warmer.

      Agree. I had insulated leather work gloves from the Sharonville hardware store. Had everything preset on automatic with a remote release cord with button big enough to press with gloves.

    I liked the frozen stream reflecting the light. And the friendly volunteers. Fred thanks for you helpful suggestions.

    It was coooold... But still a nice place and the hot chocolate was good. But my pictures didn't turn out so well. I blame the cold... ;-)

    Are we meeting anywhere? Or should we just show up and start taking pictures?

      I just found the answer in the description "meet out on the grounds".

    I attended the 12/5 evening and easily spent the time shooting until closing time!

    Sounds like a fun shoot and near my home in Landen. Love to be included. Dennis is a OVCC member and will be coming with me.
