It's rain season, within a couple of days the temperature dropped considerably that now we wear jackets, and finally the clouds are giving us their annual show up in the sky. However I am attracted to the soft clouds rather than the big fluffy ones.
Apologies to the cumulus and cumulonimbus...I am a fan of the strato and altostrato clouds. The soft wispy ones which add a touch of lightness to the whole drama of the fluffy big cumulus.
Yesterday morning I had a field day shooting soft patches of clouds at around 6:20am, just before the heavens decided to open up and pour down on us.
It can be tricky to shoot these type of clouds above. More often than not there isn't enough contrast in the clouds for the camera to be able to read and focus properly, so in such cases I ditch the autofocus and focus manually.
I keep my ISO low, depending on the time of day, sometimes I have to push it to 250, however I work with a medium aperture of 4-5.6. Even though I am a fan of the open wide apertures, I always keep in mind that I might need to print them one day so a little bit of depth would be ideal.
Look up at the skies...and follow your own cloud...
