Christmas Lights Wonderland Tour

Alight at Night!

Returns, December 2017 from 4pm - 10pm

Upper Canada Village, Morrisburg, Ontario

Places Limited - Register soon!

Nestled next to the St Lawrence River, historic Upper Canada Village is the setting for this truly unique workshop. An 1800's pioneer style settlement, its rustic old farm buildings and houses are festively decorated with more than 1 million colourful lamps in hues of red, blue, yellow, orange, green and even lavender! Everywhere you look, beautiful light... enhances the sight!

With a carpet of stars twinkling in the skies above us, for more some four hours, we will photograph the lit-up village with its horse drawn carriages and calèches, clip-cloping though the winding, snow-covered trails. Holiday tunes like Karen Carpenter's “Walking Through a Winter Wonderland” floats through the air, intensifying the feeling. Truly a magnificent, wintry setting to bestow!

A delightful, three-course banquet follows at the Harvest Barn located inside the village grounds. Vegetarian dishes are available too. We conclude the evening with an image evaluation session, to help you process your photos to the max!

Workshop participants will learn how to strengthen their skills at composing and exposing for nightscapes with brightly lit details, at select locations on the snowy grounds. One-on-one instruction includes exposure guidelines, tips on how to evaluate your results on the Histogram, using the "highlights" setting on your camera, auto bracketing to create HDR imagery, plus composition suggestions to assure you come away with superb images from a memorable evening.
