It may not be snowing in your part of the world right now, but here in the northern hemisphere, winter has definitely arrived. All these cold, frosty, icy, and yes, snowy days have us thinking about the great photo ops wintry weather provides.
Of course, a little prep’s in order if you want to brave the cold and shoot away. For starters, layer up to stay warm, and get a good pair of fingerless gloves so you don’t waste time and miss a shot while you’re pulling your mittens off and on.
Check out these excellent winter photo tips to keep your camera gear running smoothly when temperatures drop, along with some good info on the right exposure to use when shooting blindingly white snow and ice.
And if you’d rather stay cozy inside, here are plenty of winter photo projects to keep you busy. There’s no better time to sort through all those photos on your computer, or scan in some of your old favorites, and make a beautiful book.
