After a long hiatus, Brian Osborne from The Photo Classroom is back with a timely topic sharing a few tips for photographing snow scenes. In the video we share some camera settings that you might want to work with specifically for capturing great snow photos.
Below are some examples of how changing the exposure compensation and the white balance can affect the final result of your snow images.
While the exact amount of exposure compensation and white balance adjustment will vary on your particular situation, camera and lighting; working hard at getting well-exposed and accurately-colored images in the winter is important to produceing excellent photographs. Also, as was mentioned in the video, snow images in bright sunny conditions, may or may not need the same exposure and white balance adjustments. However remember that especially in the Charlotte area, any white stuff that does fall does not last long so being out when it is overcast and maybe even snowing is often the best opportunity. Here is hoping for snow in 2021!
