    Hi All,

    I'm off skiing at the end of the month (burglars don't read this :) ), and
    will be taking my new DSLR with me, hoping to get good landscape shots as
    well as action shots of people in our party.

    As I'm really new to this (not the skiing) has anyone got any good tips for
    making the most of my short time out there, for example are there any
    filters I should use, shutter speeds to go for, whatever really, I'm keen to
    learn. I've read that I shold use either an orange or pink filter what do
    you think??

    Tomgo1 Guest has two articles this month about the subject.
    one on using a camera in the cold and one about ski photos.

  3. I prefer to let my camera cool to the ambient temperature so that any
    snow that hits it won't get it wet. However, that worsens the battery
    problem - I use 3 batteries (unused ones warm in my pocket) and rotate
    them each hour to keep them from getting spent.

    Get yourself a good pair of fingerless gloves or mittens.
