Default Animal Antics - My Dog in the snow!

Well 4 feet of snow fell in 3 days in Breckenridge Colorado when we were there the other day. My dog named Rain thought it was great fun playing in all the snow!




And of course the nap after the play...

Nice shots. Here's a tip on shooting snow or other bright scenes. If you shoot with the camera set for automatic or program mode, it will create an image with an average exposure of 18% gray. Consequently, if shooting a very bright scene, the exposure meter will darken it by reducing the exposure. The opposite is true when shooting at night or very dark scenes. To compensate when shooting snow, you need to set your exposure compensation to +0.5 - +1.0 ev or f-stop. For dark scenes, use compensation of -0.5 - -1.0 ev or f-stop. Experiment with this to determine the best setting for your situation.

Many years ago, we lived in Idaho Falls where they get lots of snow every winter. We had a small mix-bread "mutt" that hadn't seen too much snow. I picked him up and went out the back door and gently tossed him into a two-foot layer of snow to see what would happen. He loved it! He ran and jumped around and even ate some of it. I had never seen him have so much fun.

Annie, our 7-1/2 year old Sheltie loves the snow though she seldom gets to experience it. We've had a couple of very light snowfalls this season. However, she hates the rain!

Default Thanks Carl!

Carl,

Thanks so much for the tip about shooting in the snow. I was out snowshoeing this weekend and came about with much better results shooting in the snow...
