Snowstorms are so beautiful, all the big white flakes slowly floating down and covering everything in a perfect white blanket. To photograph snow and help it appear in your pictures try a slower shutter speed like 1/60 or 1/125, and add a flash, as in these photographs I took during Burlington’s last snowstorm. All photos, Nikon D-300 with 12-24mm zoom lens, ISO 400, shutter speed 1/125 with flash at F/9. Zooms, 13mm, 24mm, 24mm, 22mm, 19mm, and 22mm.
