1st snow by shutterbugger

1st snow

We've had flurries, but this is the first that's stuck to anything!
I went out the door, guns a blazin', looked at my shots and all were crap! I definitely have to do some reading about settings while shooting snow!
@russianblue I think this is Steve's fault!

My word it has stuck but very prettily !! Lovely against that blue bokeh back ground !!

still no snow here... this shot looks good to me. Spot metering in your camera might help. Point the spot at the place you want to be exposed properly (snow) and see what happens...

beautiful idea of taking a picture of the first snow on very thin branches!

Love the focus!

Cool shot!!

I just found this article and it seems pretty helpful. All of them say to shoot on cloudy and put the exposure up. What metre mode do you guys shoot on? All the same, or do you change it up? I don't know if I've changed mine, since I don't really know what I'm doing@janmaki @onarom

@onarom @janmaki duh....I forgot to put the article. What's WRONG with me today!! http://www.learn.usa.canon.com/resources/articles/2011/qt_photograph_snow_article.shtml

Ah! The first of many I bet!

@shutterbugger I'm using spot metering a lot, go to manual mode and select 2nd menu. There should be "Metering mode". For this image with high contrasts, it would work pretty nicely I think.

@shutterbugger I'm sorry - no treats for Steve! At least you can take some pics - I'm stuck downtown in an office building with no breaks. Bleh!

No I want to try spot-metering. If it ever snows in the city. This is beautiful, and that blue background is lovely!

Snow is such a bugger, all cold, slippery and hard to expose!
