Patience is very important for finding good light. Waiting until the clouds break after a storm can often yield dramatic results.
Robyn, October 2017.
Even when you think the conditions are less than ideal, there are always interesting pictures to make. You don’t need the late evening light to make an image – by always having your camera and constantly shooting you will learn to make pictures at all times.
I love it when the clouds break. You always get great light. It is always worth your while to go out when the weather is bad because you will get used to how storms break apart at the end and you can begin to anticipate where you can get good shots.

Putting yourself on the other side of the camera reminds you how it feels for your subjects. To have that empathy is an important part of being a photographer.
I must admit that I find it a difficult and uncomfortable experience. It makes me work very hard on ensuring that the people I photograph find the experience comfortable and, I hope, empowering.
