Ideal Exposure in the Winter Wonderland

Article from Martin Bailey Photography

Here are the two images that I talk about in Chris Marquardt’s Tips From the Top Floor Podcast this week. I talked about techniques I use and teach on my Snow Monkeys & Hokkaido Photography Tour and Workshop, to control exposure and ensure you capture beautiful whites, and blacks full of texture, regardless of the brightness or color of the background. My technique also enables you to switch between both scenes instantly without messing around with Exposure Compensation. Take a listen to learn a few simple but effective tricks.

NOTE: I’ll update this post with a link to the actual episode once released, but I’m going to publish this post ahead of time, so that people don’t turn up here wondering where the example images are, as Chris is likely to release the episode while I’m asleep. :-)
