Photography during winter can be a delightful experience. The white snow covering simplifies the landscapes, providing a pristine ambiance to the scenery while also creating a contrast. The primary elements are shadows and highlights, with color taking a back seat, making it an ideal time for black and white photography. Below, I present a collection of winter photos of Slovenia in a black and white edition.
Throughout my entire Winter in Slovenia photography workshop, there was continuous snowfall and no signs of sunshine. However, this was a delightful experience as the fresh and untouched snow covered everything, offering limitless photographic opportunities. Frequently, we were blessed with the presence of large, slow-falling snowflakes, which provided an excellent additional element to our shots. While we may not have captured many majestic mountain views, the peaceful and contemplative atmosphere made up for it immensely. Without further ado, I present the photos, and I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I did creating them!
Winter Photos of Slovenia – BW Edition
As we explored beyond the Slovenian borders and into Italy, I have a few more photos to share. The beauty of nature and landscapes disregards political boundaries, so why should photographers limit themselves? ????
Bonus – Photos in Colour
For the majority of my photography during the workshop, I utilised a monochrome image profile to enhance my focus on black and white photography. However, there were certain moments where the colours were too striking to ignore, and it would have been impractical not to switch. Luckily, my Z9 camera has a custom menu feature that allows me to quickly toggle between the monochrome and neutral colour profiles. This provides me with the flexibility to respond to the situation and capture the best possible shots. So here are the colour photos.
Overall, this photography workshop in Slovenia was a delightful experience. The snowy weather conditions created a pristine and tranquil atmosphere that provided endless photographic opportunities. However, what made this workshop truly special was the wonderful group that joined in on this adventure. The shared passion for photography and the camaraderie amongst the group enhanced the overall experience, making it one of the nicest workshops ever.
