And be sure to remember these universal cold-weather photography tips!
- Let your camera and lenses get acclimatized inside a plastic bag to avoid condensation–Both going from indoors to out, and outdoors to in!
- Wide expanses of snow can fool camera meters! Remember to use Exposure Compensation and check your histograms to ensure the right settings!
- Cold batteries loose charge quicker. Bring spare batteries, and keep them inside your jacket when possible.
- Flash plus falling snow can create serious exposure and lighting challenges!
