My Favorite Type of Light

My absolute favorite time to go outside and shoot, is on overcast days.  The light is diffused.  I love how this lighting brings out such awesome textures, colors, etc.  I am looking forward to the fall/winter.

I took this shot in my backyard on Sunday.  It was completely overcast, light drizzles.  So amazing how you can obtain such even, saturated colors with this lighting.  It’s definitely my favorite  light source when shooting outside.

  1. Cindy, no, no black background. I shot this at F8 1/125 shutter speed, and underexposed by 1 stop. Used my 300mm lens. With the even lighting, it's very easy to throw the background into darkness.
    Thanks Cindy 🙂
