5 tips for shooting in snow and cold weather

Dave Johnson | Dec. 20, 2010
Remember these tips for protecting your camera when you take pictures of snowmen, frost, snowflakes, and holiday lights.


5. Check Your White Balance

Finally, snow confuses digital cameras--often the resulting photos turn out a sickly blue. The best way to fix this is to manually set the camera's white balance using a sheet of white paper before you start shooting. If you aren't enthusiastic about carrying paper around to set the color balance in the snow, you can try setting the white balance to its tungsten setting instead. Or, if your camera lets you shoot in RAW mode, you can whiten the snow afterwards on your PC and not worry about white balance at all when you take the picture.
