We still haven’t really had the cold weather (read: snow) that I would like, it has been below freezing for quite a while in central PA, creeping back up to mid-30s today. Yesterday this nice little primer came in the mail from BH. Yes, it is a glorified ad, but there are some good tips in there as well.

Even though the leaves are down and your frost-laden lawn makes crunchy sounds when you cross it in the morning, that doesn’t mean it’s time to pack your cameras away until March or April; if you do, you’re going to miss some fine picture-taking opportunities.
Appropriate layers of warm clothing and insulated boots aside, capturing strong stills and video during the colder months of the year requires a bit of foresight, a few recommended weather-related accessories, a measure of common sense and the desire to take great pictures despite the cold. According to a buddy of mine who enjoys driving around in snowstorms with the roof of his car down, this is a clear sign of mens sana in corpore sano.*
