I was wanting to get pictures of some certain remote areas without the snow, and snow is hard to take pictures of in black and white unless you know how to do it.

Ah, I can answer this!

Your camera sees everything at gray, black & white. It doesn't care if the rose is white, yellow pink or blue- if its in black and white then it will take them all at the same exposure. So the trick is to tell the camera what is dark, and what is light. If your camera has an internal meter that you can make adjustment with, point it at the snow and write down the number. then point it at the sky if it happens to be blue and write down that number, now find something very dark and write down that number as well.

chances are the number for the sky and the snow are going to be a bit different. the snow may be at 1/125, the sky at 1/60th and the dark area at 1/30th.

If you took a shot of the snow at the 1/125, it would come out gray, and the sky at 1/60 would be gray and the dark area at 1/30 would be the same shade of gray---- SO... what you need to remember is...

the smaller the hole the less the light the greater your area of focus, the larger the hole, the more the light the less your area of focus...

You can ether make the appature (the hole) larger and increase the amount of light, OR you can increase the shutter time, so that the snow would be taken at 1/60th, the sky at 1/30 and the dark area you would decrease and make 1/60th, or 125th and that would give it LESS time and make it darker.

so, if its too dark increase your time or opening and if you want it darker, decrease the opening or time. Always write down things so that you will know what you did to get that effect.
