What's The Coldest You Have Shot In?

Wed Dec 22, 2004 3:37 pm

What's the coldest weather you have shot airplanes in? This is my first northern winter in 15 years and the first since getting into this hobby and its just unbelieveably cold here. The wind chill temperature approaches 10 or 15 below zero...and I wonder if I'm crazy? I just can't see packing the camera away until spring. Then I look at all the other outdoor winter activities like football..... skiing, etc and if people can do that then I guess its not too crazy.

I am bundled up, and have gloves that all free movement of the fingers...but still, its hard sometimes to keep steady. For those who shoot in winter, and dont have IS lenses, do you find that you end up with more unfocused shots than in normal weather?

Anyone have any tricks that you use when shooting out in the frigid cold for getting good results?

I was out at DEN last February and it was so cold, I took the socks off my feet and put them on my hands to keep warm. I don't make a 30 minute drive for just a few minutes of spotting, so I had to do something. I think the temp was in the teens. Not sure though.

it was pretty cold in Toronto about 2 weeks ago, add the wind chill and the fact it was snowing like mad and the temp was -12 or so.

froze my nuts off!

Does this look cold to you?

Well...it was 8 degrees in AZO the other day, but the Wind Chill was around -10 I believe, needless to say I only stayed for one take-off.  Big thumbs up

-24 is my coldest temperature. I had doubts about volunteering for a trip to Alaska in December but am glad I did. The camera was a Pentax K-1000. I kept it in the airplane to keep it from fogging.

Couple of years ago I stayed out on one of the very few days with snow and temperatures probably in the region of -15C. After an hour or two when I came back to the terminal I could barely move my (white) fingers. Luckily they received their usual colour rather quickly.

Probably -10 to -15C in Calgary.. I also took a photo of a helicoptor somewhere in the Canadian rockies and i'm sure it was colder than that.. But I wasn't really there for spotting, just snowmobiling  Smokin cool

ooops, I didn't expect minus 10!!!!!!!!
That enough to freeze the balls of a brass monkey!

Seriously though, what temperatures am I likely to encounter?

Two years ago in Rhode Island ( PVD) , January the temp was already -15 and with the breeze it equated to -28 ( with wind chill )

And was it worth it ?

God no !!!

i couldn't feel my legs for 2 hours  Sad


but having said that i love the cold crisp days ... make for some real good shots !

I well remember being driven around the ramps at Detroit Willow Run / Yipsilanti by a guy in from Zantop in an open golf buggy. It was a f***ing freezing cold day, a mix of sun and snow showers, and a nasty wind chill too, which the buggy did nothing to protect us from of course. The camera would take litterally three or four pictures (this was quite some years ago, Canon T-90 which had four AA cells in a removable pack) after which the would not wind on anymore. Take the battery pack out of the camera and put it in a coat pocket with hands wrapped around it, drive to the next few airplanes, and within those few minutes the batteries had warmed up enough to take a few more pictures before it stopped again. So repeat the process... Took ages to shoot everything, by which time the photographer (me) was much colder than the batteries and even the electric golf cart was struggling a bit!

I might take today as a good example... I will be shooting tomorrow again if weather stays as perfect as it was today, although forecast is not that promising... but we'll see.

Today in the early morning ( aroun 8am ) we had -17°C air temperature... wind makes that even colder, but the low light is amazing and there's nothing better for photography than clear blue skies and cold and crisp air  Smile

Just 1ºC here in Porto Alegre... It's Brazil, a very hot country!!! We don't get much lower than this  Smile

It was on a Saturday of June, I woke up at 5am and looked at the weather... Clear skies, no clouds... Thought: Let's go to the airport then! I never imagined how cold it would be...  Smile

What's The Coldest You Have Shot In?
Thankfully in Germany it doesn't get as cold as in Scandinavia or the American Midwest. So the coldest weather I've shot in was around -5° C (23° F). For this shot I had to wander about a kilometre in powder snow. My shoes weren't really made for it, so I waited about an hour with cold & wet feet.

For those who shoot in winter, and dont have IS lenses, do you find that you end up with more unfocused shots than in normal weather?
I have an IS lens & yes, there are more unfocused shots in cold weather because of handshake. I think a good trick with gloves would be to cut off the tips of the thumb & the index finger to have a better feeling for the camera. Haven't tried it yet however.

Well I have been having some focus problems in the cold but it could just be slight shake (shiver) from the cold. There are not too many sunny days lately here but today is one, and i am soooo tempted to go out and try to shoot a couple before i have to go to work (indoors, luckily). but the temp. right now is 1, wind chill -16 (or -18 and -27 on the metric scale!)
I dont know how I'm not going to shiver out there!!!!

Actually I think focusing is not a big problem at all... after shooting at INN for several winters I finally found the ideal dressing code  Big grin Which is a LOT, trust me...

It's not about the temperature, only about the dressing you have... eventhough batteries get empty faster than in normal conditions, at least that's my experience.

In 1998/1999 New Years Eve I spent in Canada. I drove from Toronto to Montreal to take some shots. When I approached Montreal's city limits they had huge electronic sign with temperature reading. It was showing -38°C (I'm not kidding). When I got to Dorval I found nice place for pictures but no action. So I drove to terminal building to get worm and look for some hotel. I took about 36 pictures but only few came out ok due to camera shaking. And the only pictures that came out ok were pictures of the terminal building. Later that evening when I was walking (or running) from my hotel to the restaurant to eat some dinner my jeans were frozen so was everything inside my nose! This was the coldest I ever went out shooting. Also that was the coldest weather ever.

It was 7 degrees when I left for IAD the other day and then while I was there it was 15 degrees with 20-30 mph winds on top of that. It made things a little interesting.

So far the coldest it's been for me was when I was wearing a light sweatshirt and no gloves while taking long exposure night shots at Denver Centennial. I think the temp was 21 farenheit.

For the last four years, I did take photos from December to March. It is not the best time of the year to take photos. Usually the temperatures are between -10C and -20C plus the wind factor. The sun is out and the sky is usually a very nice blue.

The sad part you cannot stay out very long, the battey pack of the camera will have a shorter lifetime.

Last tuesday at Montreal Airport - YUL it was -19C with the wind it was -37C, to cold to take photos.

I've been out spotting when the outside air temperature has been about -33c ... and if you added in the windchill... it was probably around -40c. Once it gets below -20c.... it's all the same. You're never outside for more than 30-40 seconds, and it all feels the same. Winnipeg does that to you.

And not only that but I shot 5 in the sequence, and only 1 was real bad. 2 were very sharp, and two were just a tad soft. So not bad overall!

I just got my 10D, and we had a cold spell ever since, and I was worried that this used camera had a focus problem becauase I was getting a LOT of blurred shots. But I THINK rather it was me, not being used to this cold.

In February of this year we worked on this aircraft - on the ramp - for five days straight. Daytime temps were in the single digits, and nighttime (when we were there the most) fell to nearly -20 F. Then add in the winds, and we had temps approaching -50F. We were working in the aft cargo pit where there had been a perfume spill, so we had to keep the door open at all times while inside. BRRRRRR! Winters in Indiana can be BRUTAL!

This was during a snowstorm at 3200 meters altitude, on the peak of a mountain, with gail force winds pounding us. Temperature without windchill factor was about -25C. Windchill added it would've been about -35 / -40C. Man was I glad that I wore my thermolayer  Smile

Many years ago I was at YIP and saw a Transamerica C-130. I had never seen one so I wanted to shoot it. The temp was around zero with a strong wind. I had to walk about 100 yards to get to the aircraft.There was about eight inches of snow on the ground and there had been some freezing rain after that so the snow had a crust on it so every time you took a step you sunk in. I was one cold, miserable SOB by the time I got back to the car.

I was in Northern Canada (Nunavut) in early November. On one day it was -22°C plus a strong wind, i.e. around -35°C windchill, making it practically impossible to walk against the wind or stay outside for a longer time - at least for me  Big grin I used up 3-4 battery packs a day despite keeping them warm.

The coldest I have shot in was -17C at EWR when I was working on the ramp for Signature back in the mid 90s, but being that I was going in and out of a water truck with a heater inside, it wasn't that bad!

Yesterday was the coldest in IAH I'd shot in, 1C with a wind chill factor around -3C! In fact, getting ready to drive home from work in a snow shower!
Whoever had money on a IAH white Christmas is making some moolah tonight!

A Couple of years ago my mate passed through Vladivostok and said it was so COLD there that the Fire Crews had to USE CO2 to fight the Fires as the Water was Freezing in the Hoses.

He tried to go out side the Hotel and the Police stopped him from leaving NOT because he was going to Photo Aircraft but it was SO Cold that if you look in to the Wind with out Goggles your Eye Balls would Freeze up ouch!

He left for Tokyo the next day!

hi guys,

as Andy said:

"Last Christmas Eve at ZRH I spent the morning at the carpark in -10C.....brrrr it was cold. But got lots of nice deicing shots, so it was worth it By the time I finished I had a stomch ache!"

Funny, that I ve been on the observation deck that day, and just thought that it was f..... cold  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

here is the same rare plane at ZRH shoot from different loactions while -10c , and we are metioning this in the captions ...  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
