Shooting in Winter Skies: Cloud and Rain Photography Tips

Overcast skies and rain photography tips

Photographers tend to get caught up in the idea of what great light is. It’s very common in landscape photography to talk about the “golden hour,” referring to sunrise, including the hour after, and sunset, including the hour before.

It comes down to finding the right subject. And for overcast and wet conditions, there are plenty of exciting options for the landscape photographer.

Come with me; I’ll give you some overcast-sky and rain photography tips, and show you some images I’ve captured under canopies of clouds.
