    Incident metering can be used, but I would be favouring spot metering iin contrasty light. With incident metering, white will be white and black will be black, but does not take into account variations in luminance of the scene. I have never added anything additional above or below the meter reading for a snow scene in bright daylight. Evaluative meters are modelled on the Zone System and do work well, but they are not foolproof, hence I would angle for separate metering and analysis of the scene.

    I never used incident metering so I will have a go. I have a Minolta IVF meter with 5 deg viewfinder but now I have to find where I placed that dome thingy ...
    We don't get snow in Sydney but have plenty of white sandy beaches. Good substitude I guess.

    @Keithwms - Reala is my fav too and I have a few in the freezer. I also like Pro 160S particularly suited to Aust outback scenes but I know this is not for my trip.
