how much compensation should  be used?

There is no firm answer to that, it will vary from shot to shot, scene to scene. One thing is learn to NOT trust your camera’s preview screen. They should only be used as a very rough guide to exposure and composure, no more. Perhaps the best way of checking you have the correct amount of exposure compensation is to use your camera’s histograms. Learning how a histogram work will make both exposure compensation and indeed manual exposure become second nature with a little practice.

Many photographers suggest a +1 1/3 or +1 2/3 f-stop compensation when you shoot in the winter and the landscape is covered in snow.
