The beauty of Winter Photography

One day last week on my way to work, the local area was shrouded in a deep mist. The sun tried to shine through but all that could be seen was a glowing ball in the eastern sky. I was late so I couldn’t stop, but this essay on winter photography brings back some of those memories.

So be brave, dress warmly, get out there and shoot, the world of winter photography awaits you!

  1. I found your blog via Google blog search while searching for winter photography and your post regarding “The beauty of Winter Photography” looks very interesting to me. I have a few Photography websites of my own and I must say that your blog is really good. Keep up the great work on a really high class resource.

    I Love winter photography and for most of us, even the thought of capturing on camera, a great shot of an idyllic winter scene is heartwarming and at the same time mind-numbingly depressing. We all know through bitter experience that a winter photography shot we thought of as perfect, might as well in fact be tossed in the garbage can. One really helpful trick that I learned for winter photography is to meter for something other than the snow. Think of all the photo opportunities we’re missing just by being unable to come to grips with proper exposure.
