Snow = Exposure Compensation

Well it looks like we will be having a fair bit of snow in the UK this weekend.  So a quick reminder that when there is snow it's time to dial in a bit of exposure compensation to make sure that snow looks crispy white rather than murky grey.

Remember the camera doesn't know it's been snowing and that everything is white so it's going to exposure for that average middle grey.  The result being at least a stop of under exposure.  So let's keep that snow crispy white and override the cameras so called intelligence.  If you don't know how to set the exposure compensation it's time to dig out the manual and read up about it plus all the other options you haven't explored before.
