Taken just after a rain on a cloudy day.
Note the texture and the fine details. The edges of the leaf, the clarity of those raindrops. That’s what even, overcast light gets you. If you’ve been following my photoblogging for a bit, you’ve seen shots taken in late evening light and ones taken a little after midday already. This is the first of a batch I took on cloudy days, and it’s the last example I need to explain the basics of natural light photography for people who’d like to improve their photos.
I’m not sure yet when I’ll do that, or on which blog, or how many posts it will take, but it’s on my to-do list. In the meantime, the Sunday Photoblogging is evolving. Starting next week, I’m doing Silent Sundays here for awhile, because the Wordless Wednesday is such a big hit. Silent Sundays are not something I thought up. I learned about them the same way I learned about Wordless Wednesdays – by paying attention to That Montreal Girl. If you like my photos, you’ll love hers.
