Chris Marquardt ... Photography in Hot Places

Episode 1805 (1:23:55)


It's now summer, so Chris joins Leo to talk about shooting pictures where heat is an issue. Cameras can overheat, so you want to keep your camera within the operating temperature range rated for that model. Know when the hottest time of the day is, which is usually in the late afternoon, and avoid those times. Sunrise and sunset are ideal. You get better light and it's not as hot. Hot often coincides with dust and sand, so don't change lenses while you're outside. Also, have a bulb blower to blow off the mirror and sensor. But avoid canned air because it has propellant that can ruin your image sensor. Then, afterward, have your camera cleaned, oiled, and adjusted by a professional.
