Camera settings
snow day is of course a clean cool tone better, it is recommended to turn the camera color temperature down. More snowflakes are needed to enter the mirror, and the shutter speed is faster, preferably greater than 1/500 second.
In order to make a group of photos look less monotonous, usually we have to shoot three parts of the whole body, half body, and close-up, which are indispensable. The close-up can even take only a part of the facial features, such as the eyes. Or mouth.
Use the snow pile to make the foreground, focus on the characters, the foreground is automatically blurred, it looks more dreamy.
The feeling of wanting snowfall is more obvious. You can choose a darker background when shooting, such as a house with bright walls.
Cynamic use of night lights, such as street lights, lights and other outdoor lighting can not only produce a bright snow contrast effect, but also create a sense of cinema.
POSE reference
If there is a lot of snow, lying on the ground will be very beautiful!
Transparent umbrella will make the picture more story-like. An umbrella can have multiple poses, such as holding an umbrella, opening an umbrella, and taking a close-up of the face through an umbrella.
Walk, its nice to walk freely in the snow.
Pick up a snow sprinkle to the lens or kick the snow to the lens. The snow particles flying in the sky are not too good to look at, and its time to test the speed of the photographer!
The same woman in the movie is looking up, and the photographer is shooting from a low angle.
