In photography it’s all about waiting for the right light, and waiting requires patience. It can also be hard to motivate yourself, but if you do you won’t regret it.
Don’t be put off by looking outside and seeing overcast weather; just get out and see what happens!
It is often with the overcast early morning weather that the most dramatic scenes evolve.
Often I will wait hours for the right time to take a photograph and sometimes return day after day until the conditions are right. Learn to be patient and the results will speak for themselves.
