Dull day

On a dull day, with dreary light grey skies, you can consider doing a few things to add interest.

  • Make the background darker by using -1 to -2 stops of exposure compensation
  • Get close to a subject that can add interest
  • If possible, make that a colourful subject
  • Use your flash!
  • Set flash compensation appropriately as needed

You will see that even on a dull day you can make interesting images.
