Sun­rise, sun­set

Take ad­van­tage of the shorter days and catch the glow­ing sky at the start and end of the day. Face east in the morn­ing and west in the af­ter­noon.

Use the light

The low win­ter sun trav­els through more at­mos­phere be­fore it hits your cam­era lens. This casts a warm glow in the early morn­ing and late af­ter­noon.

Watch your step

Your foot­prints can spoil a pris­tine snow-cov­ered land­scape, so watch your step. Look out over un­touched ground for the pret­ti­est pic­tures.

Ex­pose longer

Bright white snow can trick your cam­era’s light me­ter into un­der­ex­pos­ing your im­ages. Com­pen­sate by over­ex­pos­ing to avoid grey pic­tures and en­sure brighter, more vi­brant colours.

Bring bat­ter­ies

Low tem­per­a­tures can wreak havoc with your cam­era, drain­ing the bat­tery faster than usual. Take a spare and keep it warm in your pocket un­til you need it.
