ePHOTOzine has covered various aspects of snow photography in previous tutorials which you can find further down the article. For those who just want a quick reminder of top tips, have a read of our 3 top tips below.

Three Quick But Essential Snow Photography Tips:

Metering - If your white snow scene is looking a little dull, that's because your camera has underexposed the scene. This happens because basically, its meter gets confused by the predominantly white scene. To fix it, advanced camera users can adjust the exposure compensation. For those using compact cameras, switch to the snow scene mode to change your snow from grey to white.

Blue Snow - If you are shooting under a blue sky and your camera underexposes the shot,  you'll end up with blue snow as the scene's being lit by sun reflecting off the sky. Making the changes to settings suggested above can fix the problem or you can try switching from auto white balance to shade.

Depth - Try to find something to lead the eye into the picture otherwise a sense of depth can be easily lost.
