    ok i read an article on one of these sites about skooting people skiing, but it was more mainstream, what im doing is actually making a ski movie, and im wondering if anyone knows some tips for getting the action shots right. i have a canon GL-1 which im gona be using with a wide angle lense depending on the shot. doesn anyone have any experience shooting in snow?

    Get hold of a decent neutral density filter is probably the best thing you can do, otherwise the autowhite balance will wash out all the colours or if you set it manually you'll have real problems trying to get a decent picture. Also the filter cuts down on the glare, which can really spoil your shots. Cranking up the shutter speed should make things look a little better as well.

    It's also worth trying polarising and/or UV filters to reduce the glare.
