Icescapes class teaches cool photography

Lesson is one of many given at South Platte Park

Nature photographers may find themselves bummed by the muted pallets and bleak landscapes of winter, but South Platte Park interpreter Victoria Sutton has a remedy: ice photography.

“Photography allows the unremarkable to become extraordinary,” Sutton said.

“Once you have an eye for detail, you can find beauty everywhere.”

Sutton led a class, the final entry in a fall and winter photography series, on the fundamentals of photographing ice at the park on Jan. 6, though only one of the class’s six registered participants showed up to brave the morning chill.

“Classes like these really help me hone my skills,” said Selma Kristel of Highlands Ranch. “A little field trip and workshop is always worth it.”

Sutton recommended ice photographers use a low ISO, an f-stop of around 11, a polarizing filter, and be aware that cold weather can quickly drain a camera’s battery.

South Platte Park hosts a wealth of events, classes and programs. Find more at ssprd.org/nature.
