Today we’re going behind the lens to hear what it takes to make a great photograph, even in frigid conditions. Flickr photographer ~1ladybug~ writes, “It was so cold today: -20C or -4F. I went to feed the birds but didn’t stay long as my fingers were freezing through my gloves. I was happy to get this little poser [a gray jay], then I headed home.” The lengths we go for photography!
