In honor of this cold weather that’s swept the nation I wanted to share a few tips on shooting in cold weather.

• Batteries- Simply put, they drain faster in cold weather than in warm weather.  The modern lithium-ion batteries do a pretty good job unless it’s extremely cold.  In that case they can can be reduced to 50% or more.  A great way to keep them from draining so fast is to keep them warm in your pockets while you’re out shooting or over night in your sleeping bag with you.  Keep this in mind if your using an external flash.  Those batteries need to stay warm too.  It never hurts to have a couple of back ups to help compensate for the extra drain on your batteries.

About smokeycamping

Well let's see have lived in NY for my whole life, have always loved the outdoors (as long as it is warm out) have always hated the cold, and like a dummy have stayed in NY. But now with my second try my wife, we have been camping now for well over 25 yrs. We currently own a 2010 Cedar creek silverback 35TS and can not wait to get out on the highways and see this great country we all call home. Hope to see every National park before my medical issue becomes too bad to travel. I love my African gray parrot (she is my baby) and have two dogs at the time brother and sister mutts, but love them all the same. Have always been a big Nascar fan, love computers (have a number of certificates to build and work on them) am trying to learn photography, enjoy light hiking, being with good friends and folks. country music, pop music and just being outdoors. So I hope someday to meet some of the great people who like what I like and post out there in some great campground somewhere in the country, till then I will keep posting and I hope you keep liking.
