Winter Photography Tips Which Everyone Should Know
Gear up for winter
Winter can be a challenging season and if you want to be ready for whatever the weather throws at you, you need to carry the right gear. If you have a DSLR with you or a camera with interchangeable lenses, the last thing you want to do is change lenses outside. Changing lenses outdoors during winter can run you the risk of condensation inside the camera body. Also remember to carry with you fully charged batteries.
When taking pictures in the snow, you want to minimize the detail. This can be difficult to do because of the fact that there is so much white to deal with. Overexposure will wash out detail but if you under expose the image will be too dark. It is best to use manual mode when taking pictures in the snow because you want to be able to make the necessary adjustments to produce the best pictures possible.
Using flash will help you light up the snowflakes. However, do not use too much flash because all you need is a little extra light. You might want to look into purchasing a light diffuser if you do not have one yet.
Snow and people
The snow makes a very good background to capture people. Shoot pictures of people when they are playing in the snow or just trying to have a little fun. Capture snowball fights or people skiing or engaging in other winter sports. Take all the sights in.
Just because it is snowing does not mean that you have to always shoot in the cold. You can always capture images from a warm spot. You can choose inside a car or from your room window.
