I am shipping out for a private shoot in the Colorado backcountry in a week. The project is to photograph the client (very skilled backcountry skier) for a week above 8,000ft skiing and camping.
I am a very skilled backcountry skier myself, am a decent photographer but have never put the two together.
Please lend any advice you may have as I dont want to run into too many unforseen problems.
Problems I foresee:
-Camera fogging (you just do the bag trick when you change temp right?)
-Mechanical problems due to the cold temp in lense/body. (using L-lenses and 50D)
-Tripod sinking in the snow. (I thought about putting ski pole baskets on the tripod tips to prvent excessive sinking)
-Moisture getting into lenses/camera when changing lenses.
-Batteries not staying charged very long.
Most problems come from the cold...so I plan on sleeping with alot of my gear in my sleeping bad with me.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
