Winter is just about here in the Northern Hemisphere (there is a bad storm raging outside as I write this), and it brings with it a bunch of new creative possibilities. As you get ready for the snow to fly, check out these seven fantastic tips for better winter photos.
Coming to you from Photo Tom, this great video details seven tips for better winter landscape photography. Along with the seven tips offered here, another is to embrace drone work (you can read 10 tips for that here). The neat thing about winter is that the snow and ice render landscapes in an entirely different way, and that is even more apparent from above, where seemingly familiar scenes are shown in abstract and unusual ways. If you own a drone, it is well worth braving the cold to go for a winter flight or two. As the video details, just be careful with your exposures, as snow frequently tricks the automatic metering in cameras. Check out the video above for lots of helpful advice and example photos.
