Tips for Shooting in Extreme Weather

12/14/2012 6:34 AM Eastern

DP Tom Guilmette is on assignment at the summit of New Hampshire's Mount Washington where the temperature is 6 degrees F and the windchill is -25 at 60 miles per hour sustained. He's figured out how to capture time-lapses at those extreme temperatures and he's sharing that knowledge on his blog.

He writes, "I am using a bunch of gear that I built just for this extreme environment. Over the last few weeks, I have been racking my brain and making trips to Walmart and Home Depot. I tested stuff in my freezer at home! At the time of this blog, I have shot four time lapses up on the summit with 100 percent success in ridiculous weather. The custom heated camera enclosures I designed and built for less than $100 each are actually working. Go figure!"
