Taking winter photographs is an art form. One of the first things you need to learn to get perfect ones is how to get proper exposure. The white expanse of snow in most winter backgrounds leads to a lack of detail and incorrect colors. Learn how to avoid these things and take winter photographs correctly.

There is a lot of white in winter backgrounds. All of that snow is going to present a problem to photographers by making it easy to create overexposed photos. When your photos are overexposed, you lose the detail you were surely going for. The best winter photos have exquisite detail in spite of the white background. Further, your aim is to get the white fully white, instead of looking gray or some other neutral color. This session teaches you techniques for getting proper exposure on your winter photographs so you capture all of the details, regardless of the light reflecting off the snow that is all around you.
