Advice for Sky Photographers

Photographing The SkyThe renowned sky author and photographer, Storm Dunlop, has written a short piece for the Cloud Collector’s Reference section of our website with advice for anyone interested in photographing clouds.
Not only does Storm have just about the most appropriate name for any cloud enthusiast, he also knows a lot about sky photography as he is the author of the classic reference book Photographing Weather. In the piece, he offers helpful suggestions on cameras, settings and filters to help you take the best images of the sky.
Any budding cloud photographers should take a look at Storm Dunlop’s article Photographing The Sky.

    Very intersting. A couple of points there that I would never have thought of, ie, using a snow or sports setting. Thank you.

    Very good general advice for cloud spotting.
    I think also that it is important, and more dramatic, the capture of the clouds and a portion of soil under them in sky photographs. However, sometimes this is not possible.
    Thanks for the article.
