Winter photography tips for nature photography definitely include the use of snowshoes. This winter season equipment will provide a stable platform for you as opposed to cross-country skis. Also, the pace of snowshoeing is more leisurely and is better suited for observation and taking winter nature pictures. Another great advantage is that snowshoes will allow you to get to a hard-to-reach spot better than any other piece of winter hiking equipment.

1. Charge your camera and phone batteries; cold weather reduces the life of the battery charge.

2. Dress accordingly and wear gloves that will allow you full control of the camera and have a good grip.

3. Always have a dry lens wipe handy to clean the snow, debris or condensation.

4. If snow is in the forecast use the protective bag for the camera.

5. On an overcast day, concentrate on details; do not include skies in the composition.
