Making the Most of Overcast Conditions

Making the Most of Overcast Conditions - I love colourful sunrises and sunsets with beautiful warm golden light illuminating the landscape, but when you’ve dragged yourself out of bed in the dark and up a mountain and the weather doesn’t give you what you want, there’s still the possibility to capture stark moody landscapes.

I headed up to Passo Giau in the Dolomites with the intention of shooting first light but very quickly realised that wasn’t going to be an option with the low cloud and flat light.

In this video I take you through the process of looking at the landscape to identify an interesting image in overcast conditions and then how I processed it in Lightroom to make the most of the mood of the scene.
