    B&W Film - Shooting on snow?

    Recently started shooting more film again, but this time developing and scanning at home.

    Thinking about shooting some skiing this winter, anything I should keep in mind? Obviously metering will be a big one, but beyond that? Do I need to be worried about condensation any more than normal?

    Will shoot either tri-x or hp5+ (need to be something that isn't c-41). Probably just leave it at box speed or maybe shoot at 200.

    Thoughts? Experiences?

    Results around the house and town have been awesome so far.

    Take an incident reading, or overexpose by 2 stops. You can push a stop or two for more contrast/grain.

    C41 at home is simple, you should pick up a kit and try it. No need to worry about dev times and you can develop multiple different rolls at the same time.
