5 Tips For Shooting Winter Landscapes

5 Tips For Shooting Winter Landscapes

Winter highlights the hardest parts of our climate, and many people put their camera bags up until the beginning of spring. But, if you don't keep your camera, you miss out on the brute beauty that this magical season brings.

Here are some tips to make the trip more enjoyable.

1. Wear the right clothes: it is very important to pack up hot when outdoors filming winter images. The winter season brings the hardest items, so if you plan to spend a few days outdoors and always be well prepared.

2. See the time: It is very important to know how time is going to be. You don't want to travel for a few hours and then listen to a weather report that tells you: The weather is humid over the next few days.  During the winter months, the weather can change dramatically in a matter of hours.

It is always advisable to let someone know where you are going and what itinerary you plan to take. If you are injured or never caught in a storm, someone may be able to help.

3. Carry only what you need: only wear the essentials. You don't need to download your camera bag with every piece of equipment you own. If you're going to be taking pictures all day, you're much better off going as light as possible.  Wearing a light load will also help to preserve the energy.  You could climb icy rocks or cross snowy hills; A hot pot would do you a lot better than a third camera.

4. Look for detail: snow, ice and frost bring out the texture and atmosphere in most subjects.  The morning frost is an ideal time for close-up photography. The icy morning also brings models in our landscapes.

Be careful where you put your camera: If you take pictures early in the morning try to place it in slanting angles to the sun-this will give your images strong shadows. This will also add mood to your landscape images.  Once you have found the perfect place pay extra attention to the foreground interests, as this will add depth to your image.

5. Expose carefully: Snow and ice are extremely difficult to display properly. Snow usually confuses your camera metering system or your portable light meter. When you take a light snow reading, you will automatically get an underexposed image. The meter will record the snow as gray.

Now it's time to start framing your shots.   If you hold your photos add 1-2 of light stops to compensate for reading your light meter. Using an 18% gray card, which I described in a previous article, I should also give you a perfect light reading.
