On an overcast day…

…you can shoot softly lit subjects.

Can you see – no shadows, no harsh contrast, no washed-out colours.

And another one:

So next time it is overcast, don’t say “bad weather, I can’t take pictures”. On the contrary, it’s great weather for photos.

  1. Hi! I thought you might be interested to know about a free webinar this weekend (June 11-13) regarding studio lighting with Zach Arias at Creativelive. I think he’s covering a range of topics for that look geared towards emerging pros. Regardless, he seems like quite a character and some of his lighting/posing techniques might be of interest to you.

    Here is the website: http://creativelive.com/

    There are links to his blog from that website.

    Best regards!
