4, snow exposure
Accurate exposure is the first factor of filming snow, we must first understand the characteristic of the snow, because of the snow on the ground out after will produce a mirror reflection effect, caused the snow on the surface of the features are: brightness, contrast, small, high reflective rate, lack of hierarchy, tonal and single. Taken in this way, the camera to the scene with the human eye can see live have some difference.
If you directly with a camera or mobile phone, to the snow for metering, taken out of the picture will be darker, at this point you must conduct exposure compensation to obtain normal exposure. In general, most of the area of the picture is snow cover, metering increased after exposure compensation is more suitable for 1 to 2 file. Snow photographs taken this extreme, in addition to the photometric method is more exquisite, also can use some accessories to help photographers shooting, one of the most important parts is the polarizer. Can make a big snow surface polarization of the reflective intensity, combined with the light of the polarizer can make the picture than decrease a lot.

Snow and rain scene, high brightness light intensity, want to show the snow move feeling, can choose a slower shutter, can also choose the dark background, so that can better let the pictures have administrative levels feeling.
