Light Reflection: 6 Reasons Videographers Love to Shoot in the Winter

Photographer shooting under cloudy skies using a Canon 5D Mark III

As Old Man Winter lowers his cold frosty mantle upon the earth, creating dark chilly nights and crisp wintry days, many video producers think of hanging up their gear until Spring returns. But from shots exploiting winter's lovely light reflection to the striking colors of the magic hour, the dead of winter can be an enlightening time to shoot creative scenes of beauty, peace or desolation.

Creepy and stylish thriller about a serial prowler.

This version on YouTube had to have a scene removed as it proved to be a little bit too much and was, perhaps, giving viewers sleepless nights. Not for everyone, but people who are into photography might be interested in the look of the film which was achieved with techniques and tricks such as back-lighting and shooting at magic hour. Shot on a Canon XM2. Post done on Sony Vegas.
