It was a bright, sunny, cold winter day. After lunch, I decided to take my camera for a walk around the 1/2 mile loop at Audubon and experiment with snow pictures. Snow can be rather challenging to capture because your camera wants to overcompensate for all the bright light entering it. Often snow pictures will come out gray, even on crisp beautiful days.
Some photographers will tell you the way to get good exposures is to set your exposure compensation up a step… That’s right – over expose your pictures. So, I set my ISO on 100, white balance on daylight, and the exposure compensation at +1. I thought I had the camera on shutter-speed priority… but turns out I had it on aperture priority at f/4. And off I went.
In post processing, I may have fiddled a bit with sharpness on some, but I didn’t touch anything else.
Please let me know what you think. I’m still developing my eye for color and exposure… I know I don’t see things like photographers do yet… So be critical, please! (Thanks for helping me learn.)
