This is a quick follow up from my previous post about clouds As I mentioned previously I love photographing clouds. I especially enjoy creating monochrome prints of clouds. I feel like such photos are much more dramatic than color photos of clouds. Also I have discovered over many years that others seem to be drawn to my black and white images over my color images of clouds.
Also, as I previous mentioned clouds are a landscape photographers best friend. Blue skies with no clouds can make the photo look rather ordinary. But when clouds fill the sky and the right light, usually early morning or during the gold hour in the evening, an ordinary scene can become special. Clouds in a photo create a capture that can never be reproduced. It becomes a one of a kind image.
The above image was photographed with a Fujifilm X-T1, ISO 200, Focal Length: 55mm, full frame would be 83mm, Shutter Speed: 1/280 of a second, F-Stop: F 8.0.
This image was also photographed with a Fujifilm X-T1, ISO 200, Focal Length: 55mm, full frame would be 83mm, Shutter Speed: 1/280 of a second, F-Stop: F 8.0.
Note: Even though I rarely use it any more the Fujifilm X-T1 is one of my all time favorite cameras. I still keep it in my car for those moments when I forget my photo gear and come across a scene that begs me to take a photo.
