January 14, 2015 - Winter shades
Whether you're a winter fan or not, as a photographer keep in mind that this season offers you the best opportunities to take some great shots... and sell them. Day or night, winter is very generous in terms of photography.

Nature
Did you see the way snow covers the mountains, the trees, the alleys or the chairs left on an abandoned terrace. Go to the park and capture that swing all in white. Stormy or sunny skies during winter? The shape of the clouds is simply stunning. The whole nature reinvents itself. We all love details and snow is the perfect "tool" that creates little sculptures on frozen leaves, flower patterns on a window or snowflakes macros.

Picture the fields and scenes covered in dense fog, or how the snow lays over canyons and monuments. Did you see Grand Canyon covered by snow?

Winter at nighttime
Snow at nighttime makes everything glow. It's perfect for street photography. An image with an alley glowing under the city lights can be sold as a wonderful postcard or as an ornamental wall picture.

Traffic
There's always the ugly side of the winter which we cannot ignore, but it can turn out a good seller for particular concepts: frozen cars, cracked thermometers and all that chaos things related to heavy snow such as blocked transportation, closed airports, people on the streets struggling with the weather.

Family time&winter fun
Picture families having fun outdoor, with children on sledge, playing with the snow or making a cute snowman. Winter fun means also snowboarding, skating, or skiing. It's a great time for sports. Picture families inside the house, sitting by the fireplace, with hot cups of tea, telling winter stories. It's a delight to see grandma cooking gingerbread with all these curious little eyes around her.

Funny side of the winter
Winter offers you big opportunities to also catch its funny side. There's plenty of room for humor and creativity. You can always see people sunbathing in the snow, or a man waiting for the bus in nothing but a t-shirt and shorts looking relaxed during a blizzard. You can always use some unusual season routines like people bathing in frozen lakes to make your images look funny.

Don't forget to set your cameras on overexposure otherwise most images will look dark or grey.
