Tip of the week #9Check the WeatherMore Like This
Another tip brought to you by personal experience.
If you are planning on going somewhere to take pictures, and need/are hoping for a certain type of weather to shoot in, check the weather forecast for the area on the day you plan on arriving and shooting. Say you want to make a star trail picture. You will need a clear night sky to make that picture. There is no sense in going for that kind of picture if there are going to be clouds. Or let's say you want a nice contrasty photo of the trees in the morning. Strong sunlight is going to do it for you, but clouds aren't going to help.
This is another one of those "be prepared" kind of tips. Also known as a clouds-suck-and-I-frickin-hate-them tip. Happy shooting, everyone ^^
