Colouring a grey day

When the sky is almost one grey blank canvas we have the challenge of a flat canvas and shadowless landscapes…but it has advantages.

” overcast days make the colours pop. Flowers, people dressed in colourful outfits, brightly painted buildings or other colourful scenes are all going to benefit from that diffused light.”

With the absence of contrast, detail is much more pronounced

Photography is all about light and you have light, you simply need to take a different approach to using this type of light”

  1. Beautifully done! These are wonderful tips and reminders of how to colouring a grey day.
    Thank you for taking time to participate. 🙂

    1. By the way its called ‘the Vase’ – literally – because it was inspired by a Scandinavian glass vessel from the fifties that the architect has in his private collection.

    1. Thanks Jude – Too often I take photos on bright sunny days & end up avoiding colour shots so it was fun to be on the hunt for the vivid hues 😉 of course I could not resist some b&w too but that is for another post

        1. in the current quick change low light conditions I have started using aperture priority mode more – setting it low and letting the camera alter the shutter speed. In manual could not keep up with it!

feedback is food for thought....
