Winter brings about new challenges to photography. You may have already noticed your camera lens fogging up while trying to capture your scout unit’s outdoor activity.
Weekly Tip: Keep your camera cold, but keep your batteries warm.
You may be tempted to put your digital camera in your jacket. Instead, stow it away in your daypack or in your camera holder. Significant temperature changes could cause condensation on the camera lens. When bringing your camera inside let it warm up in the camera bag to prevent condensation as well.
Remember to brush the snow off rather than blowing with your breath, which could cause the condensation from your breath to freeze up. If you bring extra batteries, cycle your batteries between your pockets and your camera to prevent the cold temperature from draining the energy out of them.
