[Tutorial] [PT] 5 Incredible Winter Photography Tips And Tutorials - You Need to Know

Hello MI Photography Lovers..
Greetings from Photography Team.! Winter can be a wonderful time of year for taking photos, particularly for landscape photography. Familiar locations around you can be transformed by dew or fog. And with the winter sun lower in the sky, you can capture wonderful light, amazing long shadows and stunning silhouettes. In this tutorial you’ll discover five tips to help you get the most out of your winter photography.

1. Don’t Let Your Smartphone Get Cold And Wet
Your Smartphone is very sensitive to extremes of heat and cold. In cold winter conditions the battery on your smartphone will drain a lot faster, and the ।Phone can shut down altogether if it gets too cold. In extremely cold weather, internal components can be permanently damaged.

So if you’re out and about photographing a winter wonderland, spend some time surveying your surroundings, deciding what you’d like to capture. Then just take your phone out for short periods while you take the photos you want, returning it to your pocket (preferably an internal pocket) to warm up again.

2. Wrap Up Warm
This might seem pretty obvious, but if you’re out taking photos of snowfields, frost and dew, you’re going to get cold. Wrapping up well against the cold means it will be a far more enjoyable experience.

You should also consider getting some touchscreen gloves. If your hands get cold they’ll start to shake which may result in blurred images in low light conditions. The other advantage of using gloves is that they’ll help keep the phone warm and reduce the battery drain mentioned above.

3. Make The Most Of Long Winter Shadows
In winter the sun is lower in the sky for longer, and creates wonderful long shadows. If you can capture these shadows it can result in quite dramatic photos. For best results you should shoot into the sun with the shadows filling the foreground of your shot.

Wooded areas area great for this kind of photography as you end up with multiple shadows from each individual tree. Experiment with having the sun at different positions in the frame to cause the shadows to fall at different angles.

4. Shoot In Fog
In foggy conditions, familiar locations can take on a completely different appearance. Fog can dramatically alter urban landscapes as in this shot of a highway in Dhaka city.

One of the advantages of shooting in foggy conditions is that the fog will obscure the background and help objects in the foreground to stand out.

Forest photography provides perfect opportunities to shoot in fog, often resulting in wonderful gloomy and creepy images. One thing to keep in mind is that light will be bad when it’s foggy, so be sure to hold your smartphone steady to avoid blurred images.


5. Capture Silhouettes Of Trees
In the depths of winter, when trees have lost all their leaves, you can get very dramatic shots of these bare tree with their twisted branches silhouetted against cloud-laden skies.

These types of shots are just not possible at any other time of year, so take the opportunity to wrap up warm and get out there whenever the chance presents itself.
