Great snow photos. Do you use any special filters? I have yet to get a good photo on snow.

Nope. I gave up with packing 6-8 lbs. of camera gear when digital took over film. I just have point & shoot shirt pocket cameras now. My latest is a $50.00 Kodak. I do mess about with the Google photo edits, often to get the effect that a polarizing filter would give. With the old Nikon F2, I would often use a neutral-density filter for snow and over-bright skies, and learned the painful lesson to always shoot a couple 'stops' up to compensate for bright snowfields, and 'bracket' the heck out of it, when uncertain.

There are many better sources around here for photography advice-- eg. Maverick, Greg aka copeg, and John Dittli, et al.
I really like your photographs Nancy--especially those in your guidebook!

Well, I too basically do point-and-shoot, but with a bit higher end camera. I know that I can set my camera for high contrast shots, not sure if there is a setting specifically for snow. Everyone who I knew who did snow photography in the old days used UV filters. So some of the more sophisticated advise may just go beyond my system or desire to fiddle while taking pictures. A friend went with me last year on a trip and had the latest I-phone (I-12) and her photos, totally point and shoot, were as good as mine or some even better!
