Photography advice - snow, snow, snow!

Hi everyone!

With the new year, I got to thinking about what I could add to my blog that you as readers would really enjoy. Well, how about some basic photography tips? My friends and family often come to me for advice on how to operate their new digital cameras. With so many settings, options, dials, buttons, where do they start? I'll try to touch on many different issues, mostly surrounding how to work a "point and shoot" digital camera. I will also address hot topics like I am doing here today.

This morning when I woke up, I heard the wind blowing, and freezing rain hitting the side of my house. Thankfully, I don't have to drive anywhere today, but what a mess it is out there! Some friends who work in the Salem, Danvers, Peabody, Beverly area have already said the roads are terrible. Another friend mentioned on Facebook that rt128 is at a slow crawl (big surprise!). So what do my mommy friends do when the snow starts to subside, and the sun comes out? They take their kids out to play of course! So today's hot topic is - snow photography. How do you get good pictures when the sun is gleaming off the white snow, and practically blinding you, and you can no longer see your LCD screen on the camera?! A quick google search and I found this fairly simple article called Photographing Snow. I know everyone is starting at a different level when it comes to photography, so if there's anything here you have a question about, please let me know and I'd be happy to discuss it further!

Have a great day everyone. Stay warm, and most of all, stay safe!

Yay, photography advice! That article was quite helpful even if the camera I have at present doesn't have too many of the settings they mentioned. Thank you!

Oh, it's my pleasure to follow your blog! When April (your cousin, my aunt) showed me your website, I sat around for at least 15 minutes, just looking at every picture you had put up :) I'm quite the fan...
