Be adapt­able

Don’t stop shoot­ing if it turns cloudy

NPhoto - - Feature -

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.
