"This course helped understand new ways of improving my winter photography. I enjoyed the full manual shoot video. Things I never thought to consider when shooting manually."
Julian Stocker, Norway
"I enjoyed going through the course. There was a lot of useful information from clothes layering to way more. The photography info was really well done and the composition ideas very useful.
I liked that it was short and yet complete. I will refer back often."

Winter is looming and you know what that means. Time to introduce some new photography gloves in the lineup :)
Introducing the Guardian! Throughout the years, our gloves have helped photographers stay warm whilst photographing disappearing ice caps in the Arctic, capturing wild animals in their natural snowy habitat, and accompanied photographers as they visit some of the most impressive and remote winter locations on the planet. We’ve helped landscape photographers, wildlife photographers and urban photographers create their art in comfort and this year, we are introducing The Guardian, a limited edition glove designed for photographers and photojournalists who are tasked with covering conflict areas.
The Guardian was born out of a quest to find a solution for photojournalists working in high risk, cold locations. Many photojournalists work with the military and are required to wear protective gear whilst on duty. Being out in the field as a photojournalist requires gear that is not only warm and protective but also extremely durable. Photojournalists are at constant risk of harm and need gear that will keep them safe in order to tell their important stories through images.
The Guardian has all the bells and whistles that have become signature for our brand. FlipTech on the pointer finger and thumb allow instant access to your camera dials and settings and the sticky grippy palm print gives you a good hold on your equipment without fear of losing your grip, even when tensions are high. The Guardian is insulated with Thinsulate Insulation with a 100% merino wool liner to keep you warm and the back of the hand and fingers feature Kevlar material for maximum protection.
Kevlar is an extremely unique material made from synthetic fibre that is strong enough to stop bullets and knives. It’s five times stronger than steel whilst still being a relatively light material. Kevlar is made from plastic but unlike most plastics, Kevlar doesn’t melt. It stands up to relatively high temperatures and only starts to decompose around 450 degrees Celsius (850 degrees Fahrenheit). Kevlarcan resist attacks from many different chemicals and is virtually unchanged when exposed to long periods of moisture or extremely hot water.

Night photography means different things to different people. Photographing by starlight in nature and photographing cities at night more or less represent either end of the spectrum of possibilities. There are lots of other scenarios that fall within the realm of night photography, such as auroras, moonlight, and light painting.
Each situation calls for a slightly different approach, but there are some basic settings and procedures that are relevant for almost any nighttime situation. Some are fairly obvious, and some require testing and adjustments based on your specific gear and goals.
For the purpose of this article, we’ll consider optimal image quality to be of utmost importance.
