    Yes, WB is important. You're camera will likely want to turn the snow a mid-tone grey. If your camera has a 'PRE' white balance mode, get yourself a grey card and use your camera manual to set it.

    So I have to reset that a million times for every time I step to a different location? I bought a grey card but I need to learn how to use it.

    No I'm saying learn how to use it. I've never seen one of those.

    Fotodiox has a reputation for producing less than quality stuff.

    You planning on shooting a wedding?

    Like mentioned if you are metering a scene in snow, the meter will want to try and make it gray, so you'll want to overexpose it a bit to get it to reflect the actual scene.
