More snow scenes...how's the exposure this time? (3 images)
Fresh snow on the ground yesterday. It was overcast with a few flakes still falling when I went to the park with my FZ30. I used manual exposure mode and I tried several of the suggestions I received in my recent thread about "blown-out snow pictures". I changed the metering mode from center-weighted to multiple, metered on a middling gray tree trunk, and also increased the ISO to get a faster shutter speed. Here are several of the pictures I took:Evergreens dressed in snow 1/320 @ 6.3 ISO 200.

Deer hiding in trees 1/500 @ 6.3 ISO 200.

Any comments? Is the snow exposure better? I appreciate all your suggestions. This forum is very helpful.Carolyn in NE Ohio.

Hi Carolyn.

I have read comments from your other post and these do appear to have a bit more punch to them. As for technical aspect I am not sure but the the other question is, do you think they look better than before. I think so..

Also the composition is alot better in these shots..

Good jobAusPlease visit my gallery at - http://djgphoto.zenfolio.com/..

....you can even see details in the snow, such as footprints and texture. Snow is so easy to blow out. You've done a great job....and got some nice shots to prove it!.

Good job.

Thank you, Aus. I am more pleased with them. For me, most important is that I have learned some things about metering and exposure that I can apply in the future..

Thanks for this suggestion, Jayson. For my last two "field trips" I started using manual and matrix...so guess I am on the right track. I will now experiment with opening up two stops and see what happens..

I am noob myself and these pictures look good to me. I was just curious why you said you increased ISO to get faster shutter speed? What was wrong with ISO 100 and half the speed you used?..
