    camera info?

    looks like it's just because the shadow part in the foreground is underexposed :dunno: I don't think it would be a white balance issue..

    Canon S1 IS
    I can't figure out how to find the aperature setting, etc... the original is on my computer but I deleted it off the camera. Any way to still get that info?

    open shade is very blue light, direct sunlight is very not. The odds of getting all that right in 1 shot are rediculously bad.

    Usually, when shooting digital, it's cause by white balance problems.
    Either shoot RAW and fix that shit later on your OC, if you can, or take a couple a shot with different white balance settings to see which works best.

    As good as modern cameras' metering system are, they still can be fooled by appearently the simplest of situations.

    I wanted to stay there longer but it's 5° and I didn't want to risk damaging the camera by being there too long:hs:

    Low temprature won't damage your camera.
    The only thing it affects is battery life. The colder they are, th shorter the charge will last.
    But be wary of one thing, do not bring a camera from a 5* outdoor environment into a ~60* (or whatever) environment. This wil lcause condensation, which might short your camera out.
    Instead, either put your camera in aziploc bag and bring in inside (this will cause the condensation to form on the walls of the bag instead of the camera), or bring it inside, and put it in a coolest part of the house, like a window-sill.

    It can be fixed, but will require some work

    I had kind of thought about that. I kept the camera in the pocket of my hoodie underneath my jacket until I reached where I was taking the pics. Then it went back into there. Then back into the car which wasn't terribly warm right away. I had a 25 minute ride in the car before I brought it back indoors. So I think it should be okay:hsd: :bigthumb:

    Somewhere I read that when shooting snow you want to point your camera at the sky and hold the shutter button halfway and then compose the shot. Could that be what did it?:noes: Like I said, I'm a noob and still learning the basics of my camera and shit...

    That's pretty good. I only tried with the first one though.

    What that does is to trick your camera into giving you a "warmer" color balance thereby making the snow appear a bit more yellowish in color. Contrary to this, If you want to "cool" a shot, that is add blue to the scene, white balance on a light orange color.

    Like a previous poster said, late afternoon shadows will appear to be "bluer" to the camera.
