Here in Des Moines, we have not had much for snow this winter. I’m not what you would call a huge fan of the coldest months of the year, but when I have no choice, I would rather it be snowy. So far, we have only had a little dusting and an Ice Storm Jupiter. When it snowed this winter for more than a couple of hours in a day, I knew my window of photo experimentation was limited.
I have two children who are my muses and the youngest, my girl, is most happy to oblige my every idea or inspiration. My oldest, my son, is not so readily available for me. I think sometimes he’d rather sit in a corner by himself than have me take his photos. Because of this and my desire to have a photo of both of my kids playing in the snow at night, I had to come up with some bribing. Luckily for me, it only cost me an ice cream sundae with chocolate chips on top.
Here is what I learned about photographing snow at night.
My photo was taken with a Canon 6D using a 35MM
ISO 10000 f/4.0 1/1600
A wonderful, lightweight option that is easy to use and carry along is a compact camera by Light. This is a great travel option that utilizes 17 different lenses and does not sacrifice quality for its accessibility!
