TUPPER?LAKE?-On Saturday, Jan. 30, Carl Heilman will host the "Nature in Winter Photography Workshop" from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at The Wild Center in Tupper Lake.

"Winter in the Adirondacks is a unique time, and offers endless possibilities for the nature photographer," The Wild Center said in a press release. "With potentially extreme weather conditions, winter can be the most challenging physically, but it also offers the greatest diversity of photographic opportunities."

This nature photography workshop is designed around a full day of photo instruction and photography. The day will begin indoors with an introduction that includes visuals, discussion about equipment, camera techniques and composition, plus some time for a question and answer session. Then, following a public presentation of Heilman's "Wild Adirondacks," the afternoon will be spent in the field, working with various photography techniques and equipment.

"We'll be working with whatever the weather and lighting is that day to decide when, where and the types of scenes we'll be photographing," The Wild Center said in a release.

All locations will be at or near The Wild Center.

Field photography will focus on lighting and composition, including working with wide angle, macro, telephoto and panoramic nature photography techniques. While the photo techniques will apply to both digital and film photography, working with a digital SLR camera will offer more shooting options as well as offering the opportunity for image critiques during the photo shoots.

Heilman said he enjoys working with all levels of photographers.

The cost of the workshop is $125 for Wild Center members and $138 for the public. Registration is required. To register for the workshop, contact Sally Gross at (518)?359-7800, ext. 116 or at

For those not participating in the workshop, there will be a special showing of "Wild Adirondacks" in The Flammer Theater at 1 p.m. Saturday. Heilman will provide a special introduction to the movie, followed by questions and a book signing. The movie and Q &?A is free for members or with paid admission to the museum.
