Today was a day of travel. I'm currently in North Carolina, on my way to my niece's graduation in South Carolina. (We'll arrive tomorrow)
Photography wise I spent the day shooting through the windshield. (When I wasn't driving.) This was the best shot I had for the day.
I played with setting the white balance to bring out the blues. A setting of a fluorescent seemed to work well for distant mountains and sky. For the photos of the clouds I also didn't use the recommendation of the cameras light meter, and used a slower shutter speed. This seems to make the whites whiter. Bruce Monger had told me that he had read that this was also a requirement for photographing snow, so I tried it with the clouds. It seemed to work well.
- Cool effects with white balance. (as mentioned above)
- While taking photos in a moving vehicle, 1) don't drive, 2) don't bother with objects nearby when traveling 70 mph.
- Snow settings for shutter speed seem to work well for clouds.
