@Dombowerphoto lol. All the above mate, all the above. Cheers Jim
@Coccc22 pro cameras like d700 and 5d and everything up have superiour
weather sealing so they can usually fall in snow and not get damaged, but I
really don’t know for your camera if it has some weather sealing. but it
will be probably ok, just keep wiping the snow off the camera. another
thing are lenses since they have more spaces for the water to creep in (two
rings) so I wouldn’t put non L lenses in heavy snow, but otherwise any lens
should resist some snow. just keep everything clean :)=
Here in Ontario, Canada, where it’s above freezing, no snow. Wondered where
it was. It went to Edinburgh, so Dom could make a vid. lol I like
snow…..just not a fan of shoveling. But how come Edinburgh gets it
first??? Guess nobody puts snow tires on either. Great vid Dom, I always
learn something new or a reminder of things forgotten. Seeing other far
away places always interesting.
the first picture is alot better in my eyes i dont like the +2 one
@FinlandApollo you have made it into an hdr already? then you will have to
photoshop correct the colours if it is too blue
Thanks mate. Man your making me home sick. I am an Edinburgh man but live
in the USA. Haven’t been home in about 3 years. Thanks for all your tips
and help with Photography mate. Cheers Jim
you are going to have to get some ND Filters for the front of your lens,
you can get one calle the big stopper which is 10stops of light it inhibits
from reaching your sensor.
Really good video! And the last one looked like a HDR 🙂
shot and edited today. sunday on the 28th of november in scotland and there
is this much snow! amazing, very unusual. might not have to go to work
tomorrow if it stays like this
Cool video, Dom 🙂
@Coccc22 if you have a ziplock bag and it’s not full of holes you can put
it in there and then bring it in a warm place, leaving it for at least an
hour to accomodate to temperature change. better is to leave it in your
backpack or something and also leave it alone for a hour to get slowly
In the second pic + 2, I think that the sky is too bright, too much
@Dombowerphoto which is why you’re supposed to squeeze out the air and seal
the bag outdoors, before bringing the lens in. As long as there is
little-to-no water-vapor/air in the bag, the condensation will only occur
on the outside of the bag.
@ragnarocking It’s just best to leave your camera in the bag for a few
minutes so it will be able to adapt to the warmer temperature. Condensation
is nothing more than the water molecules in gas state getting cooled down
by the cold surface of the lens, and going back to liquid state. When your
camera is warmed up a bit condensation will not happen anymore and you’ll
be a happy photographer again !
@pipesgt you missing the history? the culture? the architecture? the
abusive amount of drinking and the the guilt free small poluting cars
@johnet326 hello canada! noone in edinburgh has snow tires. this is super
unusual weather here!
One question mate.. what White balance settings to use while shooting in
@wesleyscoggins always shoot raw if you can
@gilegraam thanks for that. If I was shooting during a snowfall would it
get damaged from melting snow that falls on the camera? i have a new t2i so
want to take good care of my baby.
Top Tip Dom, thanks,
You shooting in RAW or JPEG?
@FinlandApollo image -> adjustments -> color balance and use the
blue/yellow slider in blacks, mids, and highs.
@ChrYssbulanu never get lighting in scotland, none that is interesting.
wont be having a review or tutorial of that any time soon
@Coccc22 it is not the most weather proof, best put it in a bag or get a
waterproof cover for it. I shall try and find a link for them and put it on
Inspiring and informative video… added to favourites. Thanks for sharing
