    ...for photography...
    For myself,it can't really be too cold-so long as the lens dosn't fog,the batteries don't die and my fingers don't fall off I'm good to go.Anything over say 85 F and I'm pretty much not shooting that day-not into sweating all over my equipment or constantly having to wipe my brow.Granted that means that during the hot,hot days of summer my time out is limited;day off needs to coincide with a nice day that's not super humid.Of course if I were living in an area that was pretty warm all year long I would have adapted long before now.I'd imagine though that someone doing portraits outside or street photography wouldn't want excessive amounts of heat and humidity either.Or maybe it's just me....

    I like shooting in the winter if I have the clothes for the job. Good gloves to keep my fingers warm...

    Normally I shoot in my studio and around 25 C is ideal with models and 20 C when I am in there myself doing still life.
