Sam’s Ten Tips–#9–The Thunder Rolls
Earlier this year I attended an Oopoomoo.com workshop in Trochu, Alberta at the historic St Ann Ranch. The workshop was named Badlands, Buicks and Old Buildings and our instructors were Darwin Wiggett and Samantha Chrysanthou. One of Sam’s presentations was called Ten Tips. Here’s my take on her exercises.
The Thunder Rolls
The edges of weather systems can provide incredible and strange colours and textures in the clouds. Just ensure you are on the edge and shoot the backside of storms, not the oncoming edge!
The Thunder wasn’t rolling on the morning this picture was shot, but the rain was coming down lightly. The misty background gave the image an overall blue cast, which invoked a bit of a moodiness. The frame is divided in half by the horizon which would also qualify it for “Split The Difference”.
All of Sam’s Ten Tip are named after song titles.
In the best light…
