Photographing in the snow | | Brainerd, Minnesota

Are the snowflakes fooling you?

Many, many times I have heard from people how they photographed something during a snowfall and it turned out really dark and the snowflakes were not visible. 

First of all, your camera turns everything medium gray because that is what a meter does. So to turn the snow white, go to the compensation dial and plus up the exposure to overexpose the scene. This will make the snow white.
