She wanted her senior photos in the snow, this is one from my first try at senior photos. Do any of you have tips on keeping your cameras warm other than keeping under your coat for winter photography?

Wow, Bob! That is one beautiful shot. I love the composition.

About keeping the camera warm, I dunno, Bob. Your camera is going to get cold, there's no doubt about it. For me that's not the problem; so long as it doesn't totally freeze up it's ok with me. I'm more concerned with the condensation that forms inside the lens and body when it warms up. I think warming the camera out-of-doors could be a recipe for bad luck.

Cheers,

Thank you Tom, I appreciate your comments! On the camera, I guess that is really my question, how to prevent that condensation.

I generally carry a large ziploc type bag, with some dessicant. Put camera in bag with dessicant when returning indoors, and give camera a decent time to warm up - minimum half hour. I also did this with my 35mm SRT, and I still use it from time to time after 30+ years.

Thanks guys for the comments and tips! I will shop for some dessicant and try my hand at pruning that branch. Zakd, believe or not the color of her teeth is real, I didn't touch them she has the prettiest teeth of anyone I know, here is another photo that I posted at a earlier time.

It ain't the cold (&dry) outside air which is the problem.
Problem starts when warm (and more humid) inside air gets in touch with cold camera which can cool surrounding air to dewpoint causing condensation of water.

Yes it is much better without the wooden stick.

You are lucky one to shot that kind of girl, beautifull female...she should bekeeping those teeths forever fresh.

Bring her sometime to your studio, would like to see more of her photos....
