Exposures in winter / snow conditions

Hi,

In 3 weeks I will be travelling to London. From what I understand that is pretty much dead in the middle of the U.K. winter.

In South Africa we rarely experience snow or gloomy daytime conditions. Any thoughts from you northern hemisphere boys that would assist me with getting better and more accurate exposures?

Cheers
Andrew

Hi Andrew,

don't expect to much snow at that time of the year. At this latitude (about 53 deg north) it usually is rainy and gray all day long, like in Mordor ;-))).

No, honestly, in January and February there is a fair chance of snow, but there rarely is snow before Christmas. I guess you won't face any challenges exposurewise.

Having said that, a Londoner might proof me wrong!

Snow or grey skys, manual white balance for both, then test exposure carefully.
