Deciding to shoot on one of the colder days in Winnipeg is something that you really need to decide to do. Operating a camera when the wind chill dips the temperatures below -40 means really committing. You need a camera that can operate in the harshest conditions, multiple spare batteries, and layers (read: lots and lots of layers. ie 2 pairs of socks, like three sweaters under your jacket, you know?). It does, however, mean that you'll hopefully get some great, unique shots that you wouldn't see on a normal day, where the extreme cold hasn't brought a magical stillness to the air. Joey and I exchanged theories about The OA while exploring around the river below the Maryland bridge. We ended up shooting for about 45 minutes, moustaches and glasses completely frosted over, turned icy white from our breath.
Here is what I captured:
