Yes, overexpose by one or two stops, but take a carefull look at the histogram. You do NOT want to blow out the snow or you will have no texture. If in doubt, underexpose a little bit.

I was a professional photographer for more than twenty years from the early 60's - the golden rule with snowscenes then (admittedly with film cameras)...was if is isn't snowing, or, ifit isn't sunny...then.....uut the camera awy and go to the bar...........

take care

Snow isn't white.

Milk of Magnesia is white.

The international standard for white is Magnesium Hydroxide.

Not sure what advice I can give apart from that's a super cool car c900.
Wish I'd never sold mine (been through a 9000 and currently on a 9-5)
