When the autumn leaves start turning into all kinds of bright colours, strange sensations invade my body; I cannot wait to feel the snow under my feet, to fill my lungs with the pure air of the high mountains, to enjoy the spectacular landscapes and to glide down the slopes in gracious, round curves. And, of course I want to eternalise these experiences in gorgeous images, as visual memories for myself and as evidence of my adventures to share with anyone not believing in my stories…
But how to do so? Which material to choose, which precautions to take and which safety rules to follow? How shall I position myself on sloping terrain and how to deal with lighting and composition challenges? How can I achieve good action photos within available means?
Let's limit ourselves to photographing on the slopes. Of course we can record our hikes, the resort, our after-ski parties and other festivities. You'll find more than enough hints about this in other general articles about nature, street or night photography. To stay focused though, I speak about skiers and skiing. Snowboarders are of course included in these terms ;-)
