PHOTOGRAPH FOREST SCENES AND WATERFALLS
Cloudy, rainy, and foggy conditions can also be used to your advantage, since they reduce the visibility of the background and put more emphasis on the main subject. Breitung suggests that while preparing the itinerary for your next trip, be sure to include some forest and waterfall areas so that you can take good photographs even if the sky conditions aren’t favorable.
PHOTOGRAPH FALSE SUNRISE OR SUNSET COLORS
This technique is particularly important when you want to create a colorful photo with glowing sky even if there is no real sunrise or sunset color. To use this technique, Breitung utilizes the artificial light of a nearby town or city. For this, you will need to identify an interesting scene close to a city. Breitung suggests that you shoot roughly between 45 and 90 minutes before sunrise or after sunset. During these time slots, you can achieve a balance between the artificial orange light and the natural blue light. If you go for a very long exposure, you can even photograph the glowing orange sky transitioning into cooler colors.
