A new photography world to explore! Digital photography and clouds.

A new photography world to explore!  Digital photography and clouds.In the days of film photography, capturing clouds presented an unusual challenge. Producing a good image of a cloud usually require high quality transparency film and a precise exposure.

Printing the cloud photograph presented even more obstacles, as extreme whites are actually ink voids or negatives.

Modern digital cameras do not have the same “latitude” issues as their film predecessors. And since most images are NOT printed anymore, but are typically displayed on a backlit LCD screen, we can duplicate clouds as we never could before.

As a result, I find myself looking skyward a lot more. There’s a whole world of new picture possibilities up there every day.

And it’s just outside my front door!

I have done mostly storm clouds without much success.  I will have to try the puffy everyday clouds for a change.

Great idea!

What was there before digital cameras, I forget?  I agree the contrast is amazing.

Ah I remember those days. I still mess around with a film camera now and again and I find that I have the same issue. Clouds just don't come out how you would want them to. Thank goodness for digital!

Richard, Great topic for the post. True clouds work much much better in digital than in film, but they are still one of the most difficult subjects to get right. I find it works best to save them in the RAW format instead of JPEG and then open them in lightroom and make adjustments.
