Nature Tutorial: Shoot Epic Winter Photos with 15 Tips from Landscape Pro Toma Bonciu (VIDEO)

Winter is a great season for nature photography, with many outdoor scenes blanketed in snow, while other barren landscapes are devoid of vegetation. In the video below, you’ll learn how to shoot beautiful photos this winter from landscape photographer Toma Bonciu.

Bonciu is a self-taught Romanian nature photographer whose tutorials always feature striking images and a wealth of advice for those looking to improve their outdoor photography. In the video below, he discusses 15 ways to capture the essence of winter.

Illustrated with his beautiful imagery, Bonciu’s tips run the gamut from shooting foggy sunrise photos of glowing, backlit trees, to capturing colorful reflections on a snowy morning landscape. He also demonstrates how to use “negative space” by photographing geometric patterns of fences and other objects amidst a stark white winter scene.

Bonciu offers tips for shooting in both color and black and white, and he discusses the importance of simple compositions, positioning yourself correctly in relation to the sun, and how close-ups of frozen objects can be a great way to convey the beauty of winter.
