    if it is just overexposed on white snow, white shirt, and your main subject is in correct exposed, this image is out of dynamic range of your camera sensor able to record, without compromise the correct exposure on your main subject, you can use

    change to a camera with better dynamic range
    shoot in HDR,
    use Photoshop
    exclude the white wash object in the photo
    wait for the cloud to block the sun for softening the sunlight.

    hope this help.

    That is because I am in a good sharing mood today. So I actually replied with a link, instead of "you can use the search function here or google" type of message.
