This week we start a multiple episodes series to walk you through the February 2009 Hokkaido Workshop and Photography Tour. As I mentioned last week, the workshop went very well again, with a few things that didn't go according to plan, but most which did were great fun and everyone got a whole bunch of great photos. Let's jump right into it and take a look at 10 images from the first day. Use ...
