  1. It is crucial if you are in cold temperatures to keep your digital camera cool. Do not attempt to make it warm through putting it beneath your coat or possibly in a heated place. Relocating the digital camera from the chilly to warmer heat range rapidly will result in condensation. Moisture build-up or condensation is a sure way to damage a digital camera.lobster pots20121230_snow_056_edit_untitled_17
  2. Even though the digital camera must be used chilled, the batteries must not! Keep spare batteries warm in your chest inner pockets or trouser pockets. If rapidly moving your camera from warm to cold or the reverse, keep your camera in a camera bag or plastic bag until temperatures equalize.ship on land in snow20121230_snow_028-2
  3. Digital camera devices will regularly misinterpret the white balance in the snowfall. The camera meter will expose for mid grey. This could cause a greyish or blue look in the pictures. The perfect solution is always to overexpose the photo. If shooting in Aperture Priority, add +1 exposure comp and adjust as needed to maintain snow white as white.20121230_snow_013-2
  4. Play with your macro lens and look for smaller scenes. Look at icicles, frozen wildflowers or grasses, ice formations or reflections.rose hips in snow20121230_snow_001-2
  5. Throughout the winter season the hard storms as well as cold temperatures usually lessen the air pollution with the atmosphere. Consequently, the skies tend to be crisper. This will make for excellent aerial as well as scenic images.Good Harbor beach in the snow20121230_snow_074
