Snow scenes are beautiful, but it can be difficult to capture the pure-white look of freshly fallen snow. The #1 tip is to INCREASE the exposure so that you won’t end up with grey, dull snow! You just need to add a few extra stops till you get a more realistic looking white.
If this sounds too complicated, then simply use the Snow (or Beach or Beach/Snow) Mode of your camera! It may seem obvious, but this is an important reminder because many people tend get too excited and start shooting without switching to Snow Mode. I have been guilty of this before, but luckily it could be fixed in Lightroom.
