I have been conducting a snowy owl photo workshop in Canada for many years now, and of the hundreds of images of these beautiful birds I've taken, this picture of a female snowy flying just above the snow is my favorite. The white-on-white color theme is beautiful, and the piercing yellow eyes are compelling. I don't shoot with exposure compensation on snow. I let the bright whiteness underexpose my images so the highlights are protected from being blown out, and then I adjust the exposure to taste in post-processing. Some photographers think this introduces unwanted noise, but with snow pictures, it doesn't. I captured this at 14 frames per second, and my settings were 1/3200, f/11, and auto ISO which, in this case, turned out to be 1600. My lens was the Canon 100-400mm zoom. The only tweaking I did besides exposure was to lighten the eyes of the owl with the dodge tool so they appeared as I saw them.
