Overcast photography tips

Fri 08 Sep 2017, 6:12 pm

As it looks like it'll be overcast at best on Sunday, does anyone have any pointers to help deal with the conditions?

Using an EOS 50D + 70-300 L combination, so I suspect the bulk of my photos will be limited to take-offs and landings anyway, but any tips to help with the lack of light are welcomed.

Don't be afraid of boosting your ISO settings. Most modern DSLR bodies have decent performance even at what would formerly have been considered high ISO ranges, and noise reduction software can work miracles these days. Even the in-built NR filter in Lightroom for example will do a decent job in all but the most hopeless of cases.
