En­vi­ron­men­tal weather

Weather can be­come an ad­di­tion char­ac­ter in your de­sign and il­lus­tra­tion work, in­flu­enc­ing mood and per­cep­tion. You can use to com­po­si­tional ad­van­tage, such as ground-level at­mo­spher­ics like rain or fog that can iso­late depth planes within your im­ages and cre­at­ing fo­cal ar­eas.

It’s good to be aware of weather clichés that you might want to avoid though, such as the ‘rainy fu­neral scene’. In this Jayne Eyre im­age, the snowy set­ting cre­ates a stark and op­pres­sive at­mos­phere, which is off­set by the warm lan­tern glow of the ap­proach­ing horse-drawn car­riage. July 2016
