Embrace the grey

The weather this week can be summed up in one word. Grey.

It’s important not to fight the weather, but to use it to your advantage. A grey sky can still produce a pleasing light, it’s just softer and less dramatic.

Whenever it’s grey I tend to look for more subtle and intimate images, often, as in this case leaving the sky out of the frame altogether.

This singe birch tree stood out to me, and I used a long lens to compress the perspective against the trees behind. To me it’s a good example of how to “embrace the grey” in your photography. If you’d like to learn more please consider booking yourself onto one of my workshops. I promise, whatever the weather and however accomplished you already are as a photographer, you will learn a huge amount! Thanks for looking :-)
