Grey skies #photography
We had an afternoon taking photos yesterday, but conditions were far from ideal. We had cloudy skies all afternoon, but later in the afternoon a little sun broke through and I got this picture with an ISO of 400.
This is the same scene, but I don’t like it quite as much. The tree provides a foreground to give it depth, but there isn’t much else to give it depth. Grey skies are less important when they take up so little of your picture.
Buildings make interesting subjects when the light is poor, this is an old church school. I think it’s used as a community centre now.
Canals can be good subjects, but it’s better when there are narrow-boats. This picture is made more interesting by the white house and the cyclists on the towpath.
You can see how grey the sky was on this shot. I think this would be a good scene on a sunnier day in late afternoon when the light is a warmer light. Grey skies make photography more difficult, but not impossible.
