2 Winter photo tours in Iceland, February 2017 


A trip to Iceland is an experience like no other. The landscapes are in their own class, immediately recognizable. If you have already visited Iceland in summer, you will be amazed at how it changes with the seasons, and winter is of course the very best time to visit this polar region ! Iceland is characterized by its active volcanism: this land, settled for only a thousand years, offers in fact some of the youngest landscapes on earth, with tormented and contrasting features. Throughout this photo tour we will learn how to handle the peculiarities of landscape photography in Iceland, offfering quite strong contrasts between dark volcanic ash and bright skyes (use of graduated grey filters). Panoramic photography (stitched panoramic) is also a great way to do justice to the scale of Iceland wilderness, sometimes too cramped in the classic 2/3 format.
