Well, it’s been so long since I posted, so I decided to show you some snow pictures of my boys and some tips and tricks to taking photos in the snow!
If it’s sunny, try to have the sun to the side of the subject. If they are looking into the direct sun, they tend to squint. That being said if you are in the shade and the sun is lit behind you, it tends to put you in focus and blow out the background.
For action shots, try to use multiple frames or fast shutter speed to capture the action. A few times, I wanted to get the best shot, so I was in the direct line of my boys path sledding and they had to swerve to miss me. Fun times.
If you are wanting a close up, focus on their eyes, get them to laugh or catch them at the end of their run.
It’s important to catch the whole story of their play time, so be sure to catch the details of their wet clothes, their sleds, them shovelling or them inside of their igloos or snow forts. Also, I love having not just the close ups, but little people, BIG scenery. Where they were is just as important as what they were doing! It helps you to capture the entire memory!
Enjoy the snow while it lasts in the Fraser Valley. Hope this helps you document your time in the snow.
