Although it might be April, I’m still experiencing snow with temperatures of 40 degrees and below where I live. Cold weather is not the greatest to deal with, but the sights around you are beautiful. There are picture perfect moments that you’d never want to forget. If you like to capture the beauty of the cold, here is your essential guide for cold weather photography.
You want to make sure that you’re prepared before taking off into your chilly adventures. Carry your camera and supplies in a bag or backpack which should include spare batteries, airtight plastic bags for storage, and gloves. The more prepared you are, the more successful your photo shoot will be.
The biggest thing to remember is to keep your equipment as warm as possible. If you keep your equipment out in the cold, the condensation will build up and the moisture will form inside of it. You don’t want to ruin your camera by the beauty that is snow!
I hope you can take these tips into a cold climate to create beautiful photos. It’s a different direction to take your photography, a great way to build a portfolio, and maybe even gain a career from it. Now go out and create something great!
