Photographer's Corner

Ever notice how depressing pictures of snow can look? Here’s a quick tip to liven up your wintery shots. If you make sure that your white balance is shifted a little to the yellow side (instead of blue) and add a little bit of contrast (using a filter or editing software) it’s like adding Vitamin D to your picture. You can also set your exposure based off of the darkest part of the scene, which makes the snow turn out white, instead of neutral grey. Especially on these overcast, grey days.
