Dear Dr Niraj,

Depending on the metering mode used, you will have to over expose anything you shoot in snow as the camera will try to expose for 18% grey. WB depends on the lighting situation (early morning light or afternoon or evening light or overcast etc). Unfortunately there is nothing called as correct technical parameters as it purely depends on situation.

I would request that you go through the metering tutorials to get a better understanding on metering and light.

Rgds,
