Washington DC is especially beautiful when covered in snow. While it makes for stunning photographs, photographing snow is tricky- especially if you shoot on automatic (P or Auto on your camera).That’s because light meters provide an average reading of what is IN the frame, ie: dark trees, white snow, etc. As a result, the true brilliance of snow is compromised and often appears a tad bit gray. To make snow look like real snow, you need to OVER EXPOSE when you shoot. When making the final print…in the darkroom or via Photoshop, you will need to burn in elements that need more contrast, ie: trees, etc.
