    "Thank you for a tremendous job. Through all three parts of the work I've had done this year, Reilly has come across as total classy organization. I appreciated the professionalism and courtesy of your entire crew, and of course your good humor added to the enjoyment of what could have been a real inconvenience. My neighbors are the kind of people who ask, and I'll tell them all--with a plethora of rapturous and ecstatic enthusiasm--that I couldn't have been more pleased."

    Want to take better pictures of the snow? Then look further. Be sure to check out this article from The Cleveland Heights Patch, where they explain the art of snow photography. Enjoy!

    Sooner or later, snow will arrive. When it does, you’ll rush out to take photos of snow angels, frolicking kids and puppies and the snowman on the front lawn.

    You’ll see bright white flakes. If you aren’t careful, your camera will see — well, look at the first photograph.

    Your camera will see gray.

    The fix is quick and easy. Go to your exposure compensation screen. It might be accessible with a dial or button on the camera itself, or you might have to go into your advanced menu. When you find it, change the settings to increase the camera's exposure. Try going to +1 or +2 on the exposure scale. Lock in the change, and go retake the photo.

    Chances are, it will look like the second picture, which has bright white powder.

    If you aren't concerned about the technical aspects of photography, you can stop reading now. Thanks for reading and be sure to share your photos on Patch.

    If you want to know why this works, continue reading.

    When it comes to setting exposures, photography uses a scale that stretches from the purest black to the purest white. It’s called a grayscale, and it's a holdover from black and white photography.

    When the camera takes an exposure, it averages the light reflecting from the subjects and renders it as “middle gray,” or “18 percent gray.”  Then the machine uses that tone to set exposure, shutter speed and ISO, or the sensitivity of the sensor.
