Snow photography

Sunday morning I went out for a run in the new snow, and it was beautiful. The temps were in the mid-teens and the snow wasn’t plowed yet. That meant that I wasn’t able to go fast, so I decided to take a picture or two.

One of the hardest things for a modern camera to deal with is snow. A field of bright white causes the sensors to get confused as to the actual light level of the scene. It also often comes across as too blue. None of this is anything that can’t be fixed with some Lightroom magic. Below are the before and after shots.

Besides correcting the exposure and color, I also deepened the blacks and upped the contrast to give some depth to the non-snow items. Lightroom is such a great tool and well worth the money.
