Have you ever wondered if there is a magic bullet or some special technique to capturing outstanding ski photography? For me, there isn't any. When I’m shooting winter sports there isn’t really a special technique I use, I just stay ready and I’m not afraid to use my gear
I have jumped ship (or at least have a foot on both ships) over to the mirrorless side. I have added the Sony A6300 to the setup for both filming and photography. I have to say, this isn’t a review of the camera but instead my thoughts of using the Sony out in the field.
How to shoot winter portraits? Lets start with stating that winter is a fantastic season for outdoor portraits. The snow has a majestic quality, it is often overcast (great for portraits) and provides an alternative to capturing winter purely with the landscapes.
If you have ever thought about making an income with your winter photography I’m happy to tell you that this is possible. Let's face it, Gear is expensive, traveling to great destinations to experience and photograph the landscape is expensive, heck traveling full-stop costs money. The ability to have your photography fund your adventures is a hell of an opportunity.
Witnessing an aurora is one of life’s truly magical experiences. Watching the pulsating light and soaking in the surreal green glow fills you with excitement, awe, and wonder. As photographers, however, we’re not content to just stand by and watch. We want to capture this spectacle, share it with others, and relive it again and again.
I’m going to cut straight to the chase and show you my favourite image of the trip with some insight in how I shot it. Like every adventure there are many stories to be told so I’ll carry on the tale afterward.
