78 — Winter photography gear

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #78 talks about how to enjoy win­ter pho­tog­ra­phy. Many pho­tog­ra­phers avoid shoot­ing in the win­ter because‚ it’s too cold and they feel uncom­fort­able. What a huge mis­take. There are so many spec­tac­u­lar win­ter scenes to pho­to­graph and the cold can be tamed with the right gear. The major­ity of the pod­cast is ded­i­cated to how to keep your entire body warm on a cold win­ter day. We talk about shoot­ing at dif­fer­ent lev­els of cold­ness includ­ing very cold tem­per­a­tures like –20 degrees C (-4 degrees F) and colder. We also touch on tips like avoid­ing con­den­sa­tion and pre­serv­ing bat­tery power.
