This question is aimed more for the experienced filmers in M&A (you guys know who you are), and I'm sure I could find an answer on Google but I'd like to hear what you guys have to say.
I don't film while it's snowing very often due to the fact that I am lazy and don't like standing outside being cold and wet, but I love slow motion shots of people walking through snow where the snow is nice smooth and it just looks like an epic winter wonderland. However, since I am lazy, I don't practice these shots very often.
So here is my question to you guys: How do you get shots like that? Is it better to shoot with a high shutter speed or a low shutter speed? On the one hand, high makes sense so that you can capture the snow. On the other hand, low makes sense because you will get some nice smooth motion blur to avoid it looking jittery. So what do you guys think works best?
Also, can any snowfall be made to look smooth? Or does it have to be falling very slowly?
Kind of a noob thread but I've never really taken the time to figure it out and I'm very curious.
