I've heard so many horror stories about taking cameras out in the cold, it makes me nervous about taking my equipment outside.
So, today I cheated a little. I took the screen off of our laundry room window, set up my tripod, opened the window, and took photos out my back window.
- This method, I stayed much warmer. (Although I wasn't heating the room at the time.)
- I think it acted as a blind, and the birds didn't pay much attention to me. So, I was able to take several photos of birds.
