Capturing video in the bright light from snow is one of the most challenging conditions you can shoot in. Not only is shooting in the snow quite COLD for you, your camera isn't happy, either! Then the white reflective surface plays havoc on your exposure levels and can fool your white balance.
Creatively and technically when shooting in the snow, you are challenged from the moment you arrive. When you're shooting in the snow you are shooting on not just a white background, but also an all white reflective surface. If you have an overcast day, you're doubly challenged because without shadows the snow will looked like a gray washed-out blob of nothingness to your video camera.
Here are a few quick tips to capturing video and protecting your gear in that cold white wonderland.
