#2 Fill flash during the day
Don't be afraid to use your flash during the day,
especailly if people are in your photos. It will take
care of shadows and underexposed images.
#3 Protect your camera
A change in temperature can cause problems for your
camera. Bring a plastic baggie or freezer bag with you
and place your camera inside for the transition from
outside to inside. Let condensation take place on the outside
of the bag, not on your camera or lens! Also, never breathe
or blow on your camera lens to clear to condensation. (That
just causes more moisture to collect on the lens.)
My Own Note: For cold but not freezing temperatures
you can tuck your camera into your coat to keep it warm
with body heat. It's pretty handy to simply unzip, shoot,
and zip back up!
#4 Charge those batteries!
Cold temperatures drain batteries in a hurry. Either
bring a back-up set(and keep 'em in a pocket to steal
some body warmth), or head out with a fully charged set.
#5 Add a stop or two
If you're using a digital SLR, you have the ability to add
a stop or two to make that white backgraound truly white
once you are ready to print it. If you're using a point-and-
shoot camera, you can fix all those snow photos in a software
program such as Paint Shop Pro or Adobe Photoshop etc.
