Hi Joseph,

The key thing is getting the Exposure correct. Once that's done, you can set your white and black points, and shadows/highlights so nothing is blown out. The shots that I see in this thread that look dark are underexposed, possibly because the photographers involved may have been misled by the camera's metering system. When shooting in the snow, if you follow the camera's metering system, you will likely underexpose. Fortunately, if you are shooting raw, you can adjust Exposure in post to fix long as the shot is not badly underexposed.

My RP stuff is here.
