    thanks everyone ... I guess I was most interested in effective filter choices - looks like yellow is the way to go. It's always good to get some thoughts on others metering methods too.

    I'm assuming that you plan to use monochrome, colour stock is more demanding of acurate exposure, as I'm sure you know.
    Closing down two stops will put the snow around zone III. You should open up three stops for zone VIII snow.

    poor old Dave - makes one very easy to make mistake and he gets pounced on from all angles. Perhaps people should read the threads before responding ???

    I don't mind being pounced on; occassionally, especially when I deserve it. You must admit that it serves to wake up the lurkers here abouts. Any way what's two stops between friends?
    Thinking about that, it's four stops isn't it. Mmmm, better crawl off again before I get pounced on.
    Regards Dave.

    Dave,

    The whole point of the Zone System was to give the photographer creative control of the process, and allow the photographer to interpret the scene as previsualized. You could have intended to have Zone III snow to create a certain visual effect, or you could have been going for an N+5 expansion to increase local contrast in the snow in flat light. Or maybe you only have a huge stash of grade 6 in your favorite discontinued paper. Don't let anyone second-guess your artistic intent or integrity.


    Besides, I'm sure we've all missed a few stops along the way.

    Doesn't that depend on the two pubs at which we stop?

    Don't worry Dave, my suggestion was ignored too.
