Simple Photography Tips for WINTER!



In this Photo it may look warm, but the temp was around 15 degrees!  We had arrived just before sunrise and I stayed out in the cold for most of the morning while my hubby stayed nice and warm in the truck!  It was so cold, I used a shutter release & mirror lock up, to minimize movement (my shaking)!     Shot at F22  .4sec  ISO 50 
Tips for Shooting in the Cold
  • When shooting in below-freezing weather, it is critical to have a fully charged set of batteries, since the cold temperatures can quickly drain them. Should your battery discharge too early, you can extend its life by placing it in a warm pocket, close to your body, to warm it up. Remember to always bring along two batteries: one for the camera and another to be kept charging in your cabin or room.
  • When shooting in cold weather, or extreme conditions such as snow and sleet, it's important not to change your lenses outdoors. You never want to get moisture or condensation inside the camera body.
  • Be careful bringing your camera inside a warm house or cabin from the cold outdoors. Put your cameras and lenses into a plastic bag and seal them up before you bring them indoors. Once inside, place them in the coldest area you can find so they slowly warm up to the new temperature.
  • I shoot with a rain cover (after all, snow is wet) to prevent the bodies and lenses from getting damp. Even the pro cameras, which are sturdier, need protection. Some systems even have an O ring on the lens to keep moisture from getting into the camera body.  I use a simple thin plastic rain guard that fits most telephoto lens and has a snug fitting velcro closer around the lens and hand placements for the camera's back control buttons.
  • I try to bring along thin gloves when shooting in cold weather. Set up a system that works for you, one that allows you to shoot with your fingers and stay warm in between shots. 
  • It's always wise to have a good chamois lens cleaner with you. Who knows when you might want to clean your filter or front element that has become moist from going in and out of cold temperatures.
  • A weatherproof container for Memory Cards might be a good idea, especially for those who are out in the elements often. The last thing you want to do is lose or drop your valuable photos in the snow. 


Challenge yourself to get outdoors for sunrise or sunset Winter shots!  Use a tripod for landscapes and drag the shutter a bit.

I stopped by the Hill Country Memorial Hospital, HCMH, to take some pics of my pics there on public display!  The prints have been on display for a couple years, but I haven't seen them in a long time.

My heart melted when I first saw these prints again... a little bit of me goes into each Wall Portrait!

Living Room Interior Design with Photographic prints, Kerrville, Fredericksburg, Hunt, Ingram, Comfort, Boerne, Llano, Photographer


You've viewed your images online - now what do you do?

Visualize your Hill Country home designed with your own family's original artwork!

Many homes have a mixed style of art mediums, cluttered small prints such as 8x10's or smaller, or standard retail art work.

By simplyifing and displaying your own personal images throughout your home, your designed walls will have a unique, and one-of-a-kind style!  Your home will be the envy of the neighberhood!

One large WALL PRINT or CANVAS, such as a 20x30 & larger, placed above your sofa, tv, or fireplace, will act as the focal point, or anchor, in the living or family room.  Choose your favorite photo as your focal point, or anchor!

This one large Wall Print will demand attention, and it will set the theme for the other rooms!

By starting with this simple style, you'll be on your way to a professional looking designer home!
