    Why I like shooting in the cold.

    Big fat parka = many big pockets = good bye bag, and all the weight isn't digging in on one or two straps.

    I'm sitting here emptying my bag into its pockets trying to find the best way to load up the coat, throw the tripod over the shoulder and go for a walk with the speed graphic. I think it might be a good idea to have one of the seamstresses in the family create me some sort of grafmatic holster to wear underneath it.

    I wear a vest in the warm weather. Lots of big pockets are a photographer's dream.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Wow! I am envious. I went out for a quick shoot today and nearly got frostbite - minus 10 deg C.

    For a sec I thought this was going to be another one of those "Why I Like Shooting In The Nude" threads. It's too cold here for that nonsense, (this time of year, at least).
    Now, in the summer I....nevermind.

    It was a whole +1C here in Southern Ontario (-4C with windchill). Some sleet, some snow, some sun. Typical late November day around here. I'll be breaking out the winter coat soon and filling the pockets too.
    Sorry Francesco, but I'm NOT envious of you (well maybe of your cameras...)

    No Pockets.

    Oh. I thought that you said "Why I _don't_ like shooting in the nude"
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    As usual, London was somewhere in between weather wise. 10 deg C. Started dull and overcast, then the sun came out for an hour or two (hurrah!), then it drizzled for a while before finally making up its mind to have a good solid rain for a bit (boo!). By this time it was 4pm so the sun hit the horizon & went down with a soggy thud (not that you could actually see it by then) .... Classic for the time of year.

    Forecast for the next 3 months? More of the same (and I don't need zillions of quids worth of Met. Office supercomputer to work that one out)...

    Good thing about the cold is that most people stay indoors, leaving us free to photograph in peace. Personally, I don't care if it's cold or hot, I just can't shoot in the &£%dy rain!


    Cheers, Bob.
