When the temperature heats up, make sure you keep your camera cool. That’s advice from a 25-year-veteran of the shooting world, Yamil Sued, who has been known to photograph shooting matches in the desert when the thermometer measured 134 degrees on the ground! While at the Bianchi Cup in Columbia, Mo., Yamil graciously explained to The WON, for the purposes of Shoot to Thrill, how he keeps his cameras from melting down.
Easy. He buys a cooler. He says it doesn’t have to be an expensive cooler. A styrofoam cooler will work. He puts white towels in the cooler, and sometimes, he places a white towel over the cooler, to deflect the heat of the sun. When not using his camera, he puts the camera back into the cooler.
Simple advice. Easy advice. But, hey … had you thought of it yet? To see Yamil’s work, go to http://hotgunshots.com/
