Colorado is rapidly warming up right now as winter recedes. I enjoy shooting in all the seasons, but there is something special about shooting in subzero temps without a person in sight. I recently posted a new banner on my business Facebook page, and a number of people sent me emails about how I got the shot. Above is a similar shot from the same night, minus the headlamp trail through the snow. The secret is this….your timing has to be right on the mark to blend the sky exposure with the glowing tent, generally about 45 minutes after sunset. I recently shot a story for Light It Magazine going into all the details of these shots; lighting sources, dealing with the snow, post production techniques to enhance the sky, and how that model can sit there for so long and not get cold! If you haven’t checked out Light It magazine, take a peek because it is loaded with great lighting techniques. I continue to be impressed with the long exposure and high ISO performance of the D4. Enjoy the last days of winter!
