This was a great course. It challenged me to get out there and take some pictures! It was a lot of fun, a great learning experience and I was impressed with all the feedback and help from the instructors. Thank you so much!

Learn To Take Photos is pleased to announce the winners of the January Winter Snow Photography Challenge. Photos were submitted from all over the US and Canada. The winning photo was submitted by Carol Fjellanger of Zumbro Falls, Minnesota. The photo titled "Simmer Down" is a portrait of an adorable miniature horse in the snow.
Carol says "I'm so excited you selected my photo as the winner, there were so many good photographs, it was a very interesting class, and very informative to read your critique of each photo."
The photographs were as diverse in subject matter as they are in location. In addition to the winner, five runner-ups were chosen. They are: "Urban Broodmares" by Jessica Hein of Justin, Texas, "Foggy Morning" by Kathy Higgins of West Sacramento, California, "Frozen in Motion" by Wendy Hodges of Hayden, Idaho, "Split Rail Fence" by Jo-Ann Hodgson of Burnt River, Ontario and "Winter Feed" by Bryan Smith of Ogema, Saskatchewan.
Wendy Hodges of Idaho says "This was a great course. It challenged me to get out there and take some pictures! It was a lot of fun, a great learning experience and I was impressed with all the feedback and help from the instructors. Thank you so much!"
The online photography course is offered by http://www.learntotakephotos.com and taught by Canadian photographer Christina Handley. It snows up to 6 months out of the year in Ontario and few photographers have more opportunity or experience shooting in the challenging conditions of snow.
The popular course offers digital photography tips for taking great winter snow photos and includes tips for finding subjects, protecting your gear and getting good exposures in the snow. "Exposure is the trickiest part of photographing snow scenes," says Handley. "We teach step by step how your camera sees the snow and how to get a correct exposure."
The course is attracting dozens of students from all over the world. The online photography course consists of a written lesson with lots of examples and a photography assignment. Students upload their photos and receive helpful feedback and advice. The learning environment is supportive, fun and creative. Everyone is encouraged to ask questions, discuss ideas and participate.
