SHOOTING WHITE

As a photographer, white, of all the colors gives me the hardest time. So of course, I spend a lot of time and effort trying to get good pictures of white things.

Flowers, much of the time. But other things too. Pottery. Clouds. Steeples of churches in New England. The foam on water and boats in the harbor. And of course — snow. Lots of snow.

I haven’t gotten it quite right yet, but I’m getting there.

  1. Hi Marilyn,
    The only thing I take exception to is the snow. You even made that look beautiful!

  4. My snow pictures usually turn out poorly. I think it is the lack of sunlight when I take them.

    • It’s probably how you have your light meter set and where you take your reading. You have to take your light reading on the BRIGHTEST part of the picture. This lets you retain detail in the white areas, but will make the rest of the picture dark. You need to use software to adjust the image later, but if you don’t meter the brightest part, it’ll just be a burned out area with no detail. White really IS hard to shoot. The hardest. In any light.
