READ THE WINTER PHOTOGRAPHY AND CAMPING GUIDE.
In winter, the sun is lower than usual, giving a harshly distorted light that emphasizes patterns and creates long shadows.
Winter is here, and with it comes a wonderful world of new photo opportunities.
One of the benefits of living in a country where climate changes are very large throughout the year is the wide range of photos you can take. This is most pronounced in picturesque photographs where the face of the earth literally changes with the change of weather and seasons. No two days are the same, fog followed by snow and with the sun always low in the sky, winter is one of the best times to go out into nature.
Camping in winter and photography
One of the secrets to successful nature photography, especially in winter when the days are relatively short, is preparation. You need to know exactly where you are going and what you want to capture, to avoid wandering and searching. You read guides about the areas you're going to and study maps to familiarize yourself with the area. Leaving it to chance almost always results in disappointment, regardless of extremely photogenic locations. You will rarely have the opportunity to take stunning photos from a parking lot or a car on the side of the road. You need to get your leather boots and get off the beaten path, but even if you've been in the area before you need to take some precautions. First and foremost, tell someone where you're going. You could slip and sprain your ankle, or fall and break your arm, and in sub-zero temperatures you'll quickly be at risk of hypothermia. Of course, you will also bring your mobile phone, but be aware that in remote areas the signal can be very weak or even non-existent, so don't rely on that solution. Other must-haves include a first aid kit, flashlight and compass, as well as high-energy food and drink. You also need a wide-angle and telephoto lens, an additional memory card and maybe some filters. Something else would be good to bring if you can, and that is a tripod. No other plugins can improve the quality of your photo, so don't leave them on if you really don't have to. A tripod allows you to use the lowest ISO values, set small apertures to get depth, and guarantees sharp photos by eliminating the cherry of the camera.

What do you need for a super good and high-quality photo?
Measuring light on snow
If you photograph snow then you have to be very careful with snowy landscapes, because their unusually high light reflectivity can drive away your
light meter to underexposure. Most often, you will need to increase the measured exposure by 1.5 to 2.5 stops. Some digital cameras have exposure compensation capabilities and allow you to fix this quickly and easily.
White color and high light reflection-snow will easily fool your light meter, so pictures will be underexposed
Photography is a form of art that uses light to capture images and tell stories. It is a way to document moments, capture memories, and express emotions. Photography allows us to explore the world from different perspectives, create unique art, and share our stories with others.My name is Antonio and I come from Croatia, as a personal photographer I have been taking photos for 10 years. I also photograph birthdays and other celebrations.
