Niagara Falls NY Winter Wonderland, mini workshop $125.00
• What we'll do Let's capture Niagara Falls NY in winter. With our recent Arctic Blast, Niagara Falls is a Winter Wonderland in the Daytime and Magical at Night with the lights. Plan to arrive in Niagara Falls Saturday around 2pm. Saturday we will shoot the falls in the daylight hours and return to shoot under the lights at night (hopefully getting some magic hour light as well). Sunday we will get up bright and early and grab some early am light. This is a "mini" workshop with Cold Weather shooting instructions and tips on how to keep your camera working properly in extreme weather. We will take breaks to warm up and check our images. I will look into hotels close to the falls (rates are low because its off-season). The cost of this event is $125.00, this does not include hotel, meals or travel expenses. Please Pay for this workshop in advance via PayPal or Check. My PayPal account is: Checks to: Thomas Nighswander 109 Glendale dr Ann Arbor, Mi 48103 (I am willing to make other payment arrangments as well, contact me for info) Thank you and please contact me with any questions.
