To optimize the camera for a snow in a good scene, it is really very, very simple. You can do a couple of things.
One, turn your mode dial to SCN this stands for scene and you can choose from many, many different scenes including beach or snow, as you can see u p here you have two pages of scenes unlike with any menu you can just use your zoom level to move between your first and second page. So I will just move over to the right, and then I will just go down and see the snow, and if I move over to the left this is beach.
To choose whichever scene is appropriate in your situation and doing so will optimize the camera, however you would not be able to adjust the white balance or the ISL. You have so much light and it seems that there is probably automatic will be set to any how, and with the white balance on audio it is really just fine in out door situation. So you probably do not have to worry about it so much. But if you are a stickler for white balance and ISL, such as I am. Then this seems you do not have the flexibility you need. And so, what you can do is go back to the program mode, this is the mode I normally use I have it here 95% of the time, so you do not need to move this if you would like to keep on this mode.
And basically very simply use your quick menu joy stick to move to the left in order to highlight the exposure compensation icon down here and then move up or down to adjust that exposure compensation. What you want to do is over expose by a third or even 2/3 of the stop in order to make that white snow bright white as suppose to light gray. So because there is so much light and because the ground is so bright the camera is going to darken down the image a little bit. Instead of keeping it bright, way it should be.
So over expose just a little bit, and then remember press the quick menu button. Just for a second to access the quick menu, make sure your white balance go up and set that to daylight, you can choose cloudy or shade if it is a cloudy day or if you are in the shade, or if you just want to increase the warmth of the over all color in your picture.
Make sure your ISL is set to AD you certainly do not need anymore than that. And make sure all the other settings are accepted of default positions with that block you off, with this to the multimedia option and then just press the quick menu button to escape. Now like with every other picture just move you’re focusing back to the subject, press the shutter button half way to lock focus. Where you compose the image and press the shutter button to the rest of the way to take a picture. With this image over exposed, my snowman reach should come out nice and bright.
