Dec 1st: Winter Photography…

There’s something about photography in the winter months that is pretty special I think. It’s the quality of the light and the clarity of the atmosphere I think that makes shooting in the winter really rewarding…

Sure, we get the grey days, the rainy days and then with snowy days – but we also get the crisp days and the long winter nights and these give really great photo opportunities – providing you take the opportunities when they arise. Invariably its cold but you can grab sunrise shots on the drive to work, sunset shots on the way back as well as some cracking midday shots if you’re lucky enough to get out when the sun is shining.

Daytime shooting is pretty much the same as usual albeit you need to be aware that contrasts can be massive across images that contain both sunlight and shade. Typically, you’ll need to dig-out the tripod for night shooting – although you might be lucky and find a convenient wall or tree to brace yourself against. I can’t help but feel – and that’s all it is – that the colours are more intense.

Here’s some random day/night stuff that I’ve snapped in and around Sheffield over the last month to check-out…
