Well Moose Peterson knows and you can find out the rest of the story here:
A great question of late from readers has been, How do you (as in Moose) expose for snow? Of course living in snow, I have a number of off the cuff answers, but I’ll move past those and get to the heart of the question as I look at it. What color is snow? Unless a Moose or dog has passed by, it’s white, right? I honestly don’t think there are few viewers of your photography who wouldn’t recognize the white stuff on the ground as snow.
I can’t wait to try moose technique, he sure looks like he has had lots of experience.
Lou, waiting for snow….
