Bright Overcast Equals Soft Light

The ideal light for photographing-called "sweet light" by professional photographers-is considered to be shortly before and after sunrise and sunset. Sunrise renders the "color" of light more blue, and sunset creates warmer tones. Bright overcast light during mid-morning or mid-afternoon is another ideal light that turns the sky into a great big "soft box" so subtle details easily shows up on white and pale yellow flowers. Bright overcast light also makes bright colors, like the fuscia geranium, "pop" with vibrancy.  Grab your camera when the light is right, and file the photographs away under appropriate sub-titles for reference photos to be used in future artsy theology. No fancy camera gear required; use the camera on your cell phone and/or the snappie that fits in your back pocket.
