Photographing Snow

Sadie LOVES snow! Today was her first time to be out in the snow (she is 6 months old now). She didn't want to come back inside. Tomorrow, I'll either make or buy a sweater for her. She's too small to be out for very long with no protection from the cold.

She was recently spayed, as you can see by her shaved belly.

Tip: Your camera's internal light meter will be fooled by all the bright white snow, and your images may come out dark or dingy looking. To avoid this and make the snow look as soft and white as it really is, if you have an EV (Exposure Value) setting on your camera, adjust the setting to compensate for all the brightness. For these images, I had the EV set at +2, as high as it would go.

To the complaint, 'There are no people in these photographs,'
I respond,'There are always two people:
the photographer and the viewer.'

oh thank you so much for the comment about my kit! I hope you enjoy it. I think photography is sooo neat... I got an new Nikon and I know there are so many features on it I need to learn.. I like that Bokeh technique... so cool. (I think people in photos sometimes takes away from the picture.. depending on the subject, of course)
