Don’t stop shooting if it turns cloudy
Sometimes things just won’t go your way and you’ll end up reaching a spot just as the sky becomes dull and grey. But as long as there is some variation in the clouds, you can still achieve atmospheric results. The landscape might lack contrast and look ‘flat’, but there’s plenty that you can do to add punch with selective contrast and tone adjustments when you process the shot. A classic way of adding drama to a grey day scene is to convert the image to black and white, and then use dodging and burning techniques to boost the highlights and shadows, respectively.
