I've worn two sets of gloves in the winter. One thin and tight pair, similar to cotton darkroom gloves. (Mine were actually marching band gloves.) Then a pair of "real" lined gloves on top. The "real" gloves provide the real warmth, and at least enough dexterity to shoot the camera. To change film, the real gloves come off, and the thin gloves remain. They are not designed to provide any real warmth, but they are better than nothing while you are changing film.
