Shooting in Winter

Published December 19th, 2011

I am going to China next week where it is freezing. I have been there before in the winter and it is punishingly cold and taking photographs becomes a masochistic activity. With gloves, my fingers become clumsy and it is difficult to make changes in settings and/or shoot. Without gloves, they become almost frozen and then there is practically no mobility. How does one overcome this problem? I see so many spectacular winter shots and am left wondering, how people physically prepare for these shoots. Any help and advice in the right direction would be greatly helpful. Thanks in advance.

Help Required!

Published September 27th, 2011

I must begin this by saying how overawed and humbled I feel by the level of photography displayed by so many brilliant photographers in 500px! It's easy to get lost in the breathtaking photographs here. I wish I can be this good someday!

Which brings me to the point of this post. All of us here, put up our pictures in the hope that they will be viewed and appreciated by the community here. So, if you are new and haven't established a presence here as yet , what do you do? Our photographs get buried in the avalanche of new photographs being posted every second. So, you just get a blink and you miss it opportunity of being seen in the fresh category. How do you grab eyeballs? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
