Keep warm !

Beauty and the Beast

Winter is here for good in the streets of Nuremberg. Temperatures have dropped below freezing and yesterday we had the first snow flurries of the season, even though it didn’t last very long.

But for sure it’s getting a bit uncomfortable when roaming the streets with the camera in my hands. And as the pretty lady with her lap dog in the photo above (taken with my Olympus PEN-F and the mZuiko 25mm F/2 prime lens, specs are 1/180 sec @ f/2 and ISO 200), I’m using gloves to keep my hands warm. The thing is, regular gloves are not very handy when it comes to operating the camera with all the little dials and buttons. And I’m not a big fan of wearing fingerless gloves (what is the sense of having those, when your fingertips are freezing off). But there is something like a hybrid model. A real photographers glove.  A glove with which one can simply fold the tips of thumb and index finger to the side.

I found those somewhere on the web last year (searching for photographers gloves), and they are the real thing, after testing them the rest of last winter. The crests are foldable on both gloves, by the way. It is super easy to use, so maximum you have the tips of thumb and index finger cold when leaving them exposed to operate the cam. An essential piece of gear for winter photography, not only for the street shooter.

Wish you a great Wednesday – and stay warm!

    1. True, but I’m keeping this blog non-commercial, helps me avoid most of the data privacy hustle. If you’re interested you can PM me, then I can send you the link, bought them on the “Great River” in Germany. But you should find similar models by just searching. Thanks for commenting, Magnus.

    1. Won’t be much helpful, I assume, as they had an ultra long title in German language and I bough them on the “Great River” here in Germany. But if you search for photographers glove you will find something. See Alina’s comment about B&H. Marcus
