    Hi,

    Trying to come up with a list of things i want to photograph this winter. Iv'e got a few but it just kinda hit me that there's not much to photograph in winter besides SNOW, SNOW, SNOW AND MORE SNOW. Any ideas for winter photography, i like nature related subjects.

    I suppose, not really my thing but a guess you can't be picky that time of year.

    Here are some that can be interesting.

    Frost crystals on a window.
    Macro snowflakes.
    Blow a bubble on the snow and capture it freezing.
    Sometimes when the water begins to freeze it will push up vertically like shark fins.
    A winter landscape.
    Snowy owls. Check ebird for locations near you.

    I did a silhouette on the ice of a lake at sunset and thought it came out pretty cool. Maybe try that.

    Thank you that really helps, great ideas, definitely going to try those. Yes snowy owls are already on the list, i have photographed them before but with poor quality gear, so they didn't turn out great. They come around my area but not often.

    Thanks.

    Cityscapes at night, bridges at sunrise/sunset, the ocean, lighthouses, macro, water drops, oil and water, portraits - it’s a great time to learn flash and posing...

    At least snow is considerably more photogenic than rain!

    We have a long list of indoor topics for our camera workshop, as sometimes even if it's not raining outside no-one fancies going out in the dark...
    Recent topics have included stressed plastics via crossed polarisers, thin sliced food lit by transmission, portraits, long exposures still life, UV induced fluorescence, macro, special FX...
    And for the outdoor stuff: Painting with light, moonlit landscapes, reflections, bursting balloons (water filled), fireworks...

    Admittedly many are not nature related, but variety stops you getting in a rut. :encouragement:

    As the cold makes my disability worse I do a lot more table top photography in the winter. Have a look around the house and look at things with a photography eye. And the ...what can I do with that thought. As we have seen a plastic fork photographed using a poloriser filter gives some brill effects. A knife edge in macro has leading lines to vanishing point. Water drops and crown splashes, photographing a coin spinning using a flash so that you capture a moment in the spin, hell I am not going to give you all my ideas.
    Just look around think how and what sort of photo could I make out of ....
