Photographing during winter can give many different conditions. Some wet and foggy, some snowy and some even stormy and snowy. Here are some tips on photographing them.
In my continued endeavor on exploring my home country Denmark, I went out on a snowy day to a landscape photography landmark called Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse. It is an old lighthouse being swallowed by a dune. A rather unique location and phenomenon.
I have been to this location plenty of times, but always during summer where the Milky Way lines up with the lighthouse. This time I visited during winter, where I had some fantastic moody, snowy and stormy conditions. I tried out several different angles while there, but it was my previsualized photo which worked out the best and it might become one of my favorite photos of 2019. A top tip I do not share in the video, but I realized too late, is to wear crampons. You will hear why in the video.
On the same day, I also visited an old mill where I share some thoughts on composition and compare two very different photos. However, I do start out in a moody minimalist scene with some dead trees.
Check out the video above where I share many small tips on photographing in these different conditions. Can you add any tips for winter photography? I would love to hear underneath here.
