How to Photograph Snow Landscapes
As adults, we often complain and get a bit upset when the snow moves in during the colder, winter months. It is hard to drive in the snow, schools often close down, leaving parents scrambling for childcare and things just seem all the more difficult when snow and ice abound. But remember when you were a kid? You probably loved to get out in the snow for a day of adventure and fun. We aim to bring that kind of fun back for those of you who love to take the camera out in the great outdoors for some great photo shoots during the winter months.
Today’s photography lesson is going to provide you with some quick tips on how to photograph snow landscapes. It will help you to take the best snow-based photographs ever! Yes, it can be brutally cold during the winter time, and you may not necessarily want to go out and play in the snow. But once you see today’s photography lesson by Gavin Hoey, you may find that you are eager to put on the coat, gloves and hat to get out in the great outdoors for a fun, wintertime photo shoot…
The great thing about snow and ice is that they really can complement virtually any type of photography. For example, if you love macro photography, nothing compares to taking close up shots of ice formations and snowflakes. And if you love landscape photography, nothing is quite like a great snowy shot of mountains, trees or valleys. Snow may not be a driver’s best friend, but it sure does make for some lovely photographs.
