Improve Your Winter Pictures with Exposure Compensation

We received our first significant snowfall in western Montana today, turning the world around us into pristine white. Photographing all that snow can be a challenge for your camera, though. It makes the snow a dull gray instead of bright white because it doesn't recognize the snow you see. Using +1 or +2 Exposure Compensation ensures your snow will appear pristine in your photograph as well as outside.

Regular exposure leaves snow looking dull gray.

Adjusting exposure by +1 makes the snow record bright white.
