Photographing outside, can be a cold experience – at least in Norway! Gloves that cover up the fingers, give a poor grasp, and makes it hard to press the buttons on the camera. Using fingerless gloves, on the other hand, makes the hands colder than they have to be. I use the thumbs and index fingers the most, while photographing, so today I’ve made my own photo gloves, adjusted to my needs.
These gloves aren’t warm enough to use during winter, but then I’ll just carry a pair of warm mittens in my bag, so I can warm my hands in between the shoots. Or I can apply the same technique to redo a pair of skiing gloves.
