1. Compensate your Exposure. Because of the way light meters work, if you use the exposure setting your light meter recommends, your whites will be gray. To correct for this, over expose up to +2 stops.
2. Think about your Shutter Speed. If you are photographing while it's snowing and you want to freeze the snow, then you will need a faster Shutter Speed. A slower Shutter Speed will result in white streaks through your photograph.
4. Always keep an extra battery with you. The cold drains battery life. Keep your spare battery in an inside jacket pocket to keep it warm. DPP has Canon & Nikon batteries.
5. Keep your camera dry.
If it is snowing, you should use a rain sleeve to keep your camera safe and dry.
Keep silicon packets in your bag to absorb extra moisture.
Wipe your camera down after shooting outside to help keep it clean.
6. Wearing the right clothing is important. When you are photographing outside in the winter, you need to stay warm and dry. When you are wet and cold, it will be hard to focus on photographing. There is also the risk of hypothermia or frost bite, so make sure you wear:
Wool Sweater (Wool is a fast drying material)
Weather proof jacket
