As a photographer, there’s so much to keep in mind when the weather changes – what to wear to keep warm, how to manage the changing light, what your camera needs, and more.
To make sure everyone capturing the splendor of the season is prepared for the changes the cold brings, we compiled some smart (and totally vital) advice from a few of our photographer friends who specialize in shooting outdoors.
10 tips for photographing in cold weather:
- Give your camera break from the cold as much as possible.
