8. Using Light Meters
Working with your camera’s meter can be tricky in the winter, especially if there’s a lot of snow. Snow will trick your camera into thinking it’s brighter than it might actually be, causing images to be underexposed. It can take some practice and extra shots to correct winter exposure. If you’re a more advanced photographer, pull out the hand meter and have a go. If you’re a fledgling photographer, we suggest trying to work with the camera’s meter. Again, it might take some practice to get the proper exposure.
9. Shooting Action Shots
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean there are no action shots to be had! Whether it’s skiing, snowshoeing, or skating, there are plenty of winter sports – and they can be great opportunities for a photographer. Try shooting on burst mode or shoot just as you would any movement. If there’s snow, remember to compensate for the light of the snow.
