Sharp & Well Exposed Without Automatic

Winter Bough
Frenchtown, Montana

When snow makes up only a small portion of your picture, there is no need to increase exposure compensation. An average exposure records all the tones as they should be.

I set my camera to f/8 in Aperture Priority exposure. I raised my ISO setting to 200 so that my shutter speed would also go up to 1/250 second, ensuring my hand-held picture turned out sharp.
