You can shoot awesome photos on cloudy days. I get asked ‘How to do photography on cloudy, grey, overcast days’ a lot. Look at the light qualities (not quantity) and compose images around the light.

I’m back in Zurich at Pfäffikersee lake where I do the Zurich Masterclass. Last time it was sunny, so this time lets go find some grey day photos

Great video and tips. I always get people on my workshops thinking that if it's cloudy or raining there isn't a photograph to be had, but that is simply not true. If it's grey, then I look for colour in the grey such as people with colourful umbrellas or colourful leaves in autumn. Even on overcast days there are often subtle changes in light.

I really love your comments supporting kit lens.
Also appreciated is the great value you give in the video…and then at the end suggest subscribing/liking, versus all the other photographers who act/perform like they have ants in their pants…and ask us to subscribe before we even know if they are any good.

I love how you look at photography not just from a technical point of view but from an emotional and psychological if you will. I often feel like going out and taking photos…I love camera technology and telling stories with the pictures I take…but something holds me back from just going outside and taking shots sometimes…the weather, fear of running around endlessly without finding the right motive. You address those "fears" in a way I have not seen on any other youtube channel. Hats off to you, Mr. Browne.

Your cadence reminds me so much of the great Ricky Gervais, I could listen for hours.

Great information in this video. Coincidentally it’s a gloomy day here in Colorado, and I think I’m going to go play around and shoot. Thanks for the motivation Mike.

Well what can I say Mike, fantastic video thank you for sharing. How do you get your images so sharp? Is that the quality of the lens or camera or both? I seem to struggle to get really pin sharp images…any tips would be really appreciated. I look forward to your next video.
