Most of us do not enjoy being out in bad weather and would prefer to be outside when it is warm and sunny. But when it comes to photography, sometimes, good weather is boring and bad weather is far more interesting for creating compelling images. This fantastic video discusses why you might just want to grab your camera and head outside the next time the skies look moody or stormy.
Coming to you from Chris Sale, this great video discusses why bad weather can be the best friend of a landscape photographer. Certainly, as people who just enjoy being outside, blue skies and warm weather are generally preferable. But these conditions can be rather boring from a visual perspective, and moreover, we are very used to seeing images taken in nice weather. On the other hand, moodier skies commonly offer a lot more contrast, detail, and texture. Furthermore, since fewer photographers brave the elements to capture such images, they are instantly more interesting to the viewer. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Sale.
