Thread: overcast

    Default overcast

    Hi Guys,

    Need some expert advice from you guys on how you compensate when taking photos when it's overcast skies. I'm no expert but I find that when I'm taking landscape photo and the sky is the background the photo ends up dull. I tried using a polariser but looks like it doesn't help. Please see some of the pix below. I also tried bracketing but I'm still scratching my head on the dull skies.

    I will do PS B&W for the photos.
    Having expensive gears do not make you a better photographer. Period.

    try ND Grad filter if you are taking a landscape... this filter is really useful to capture the correct exposure between the foreground and the bright skies.. so you don't need to take some bracketing and then merge on photoshop...

    iboey actually brings up a good point. Overcast skies with it's softer light does favour taking pictures in b&w.
