Winter Shooting Tips – How to get White Snow
Whether you are home for the Holidays or on the road with the Griswolds, the splendor of “Light” is everywhere.
Open up the exposure compensation on your camera +0.7 to +1.3 and use selective focusing to compose your favorite Holiday Illumination. Don’t forget your tripod when capturing lights at night!
And ya better not cry.
Ya better not pout.
Don’t be scared.
YES, you can dip your captured pixels into a digital processing program to further enhance ‘your’ vision.
Not sure how?
Come by any Bergen County Camera location with any questions you have, or stop by our Westwood Store for a Free Saturday Focus Session on a host of subjects almost every Saturday. Don’t miss December 29th’s Free Focus Session – Winter Shooting starting at 9:30 am.
Call or email BCC’s Abby Passman for a private or group session on Digital Photo Processing!
Last, while the Lights will be bright, the mercury may dip.
Keep a spare camera battery in your jacket pocket (warmer next to ‘you’ than in a bag or case) so that the joy of capturing pixels will not freeze up.

The weekend’s precipitous frozen flurry presented a wondrous opportunity to capture the majesty of winter’s cloak. Armored in boots, cap and gloves, I marched into the white of Sunday morning’s golden light with my Nikon D-SLR and a spare battery, of course, warm and snug in the pocket of my Gortex jacket!
Strong diagonal rays and shadows accentuate a classic winter scene.
