How To Take Great Shots In The Snow

As Winter settles in and snow begins to fall across the country, we're taking a look at how to take some great snow and winter shots, and why this time of year is perfect to get some beautiful pictures. We’ve put together this guide to give you some tips and ideas for photographing snow scenes and winter photography in general. 


A guide to Winter snow photography


There’s nothing like a fresh snowfall to make a winter landscape appear truly dramatic. Snow is an inspiring photographic subject, but it’s also a tricky one to capture well, and many photographers find that the glowing bright snowy scene in front of their lens mysteriously turns into a depressing grey photo after they take the shot.

At CES 2017, Panasonic announced a new mirrorless micro four thirds compactsystem interchangeable lens camera in their Lumix G range – the Panasonic Lumix GH5; building on Panasonic's heritage of working closely with videographers to deliver exceptional video capable mirrorless cameras.

The GH5 brings a number of improvements over its predecessor the GH4, so we've had a look at the differences between the GH4 vs GH5 in this review blog.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II Hands-On Review

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II Hands-On Review

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to get hands on with the new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II at Olympus' European launch event in Ronda, Spain. 

The OM-D E-M1 Mark II is the exciting successor to the Mark I that came out in 2013. A lot has changed since then and there's many Olympus users out there who are chomping at the bit to see what's changed on the Mark II and whether the much talked about improvements are worth the upgrade for existing users, or adoption for new Olympus users. 

In this review I'll be talking through my hands-on impressions of the camera with my honest thoughts about how it performed and whether or not I'm still excited about the camera after having used it for a day, along with a few sample images too.
