Outlook (POTD April 20)


Cloudy weather can make landscapes look dull, but it can also be helpful, because it provides defused light. That defused light on a cloudy day can be extremely helpful when photographing objects in a forested area, such as flowers. If you are dealing with cloudy weather, look for ways that you can take advantage of it to photograph subjects that might otherwise be wrapped in deep shadows or worse, spotted with stray beams of light.
