Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Its that time of year, Christmas music is playing on the radio, the temperature is dropping, and snow is beginning to fall. This past weekend, we got our first big snow of the year in Michigan. I love photographing the freshly fallen snow, when it sticks to the trees and transforms the whole landscape into a world of white.

About the Photo:
One of the toughest things about photographing the snow is how cold it can get. Cold air is not good for cameras (or any electronics, really), so I had to make this shoot quick. The camera doesn’t understand all the white in snowscapes, so that can make photographing snow scenes tricky. It is important to shoot in RAW so you can make nondestructive edits in Lightroom.

Camera Gear:
