So maybe I just need to vent, but the most annoying thing about doing what I do is dealing with the weather. You would think that having such things as "weather.com" or "accuweather.com" would make it easier, but they are ... well ... inaccurate at least 50% of the time.
Woke up this morning to hearing rain hit my window and thought I would have to cancel & reschedule this shoot, again, for the third time. But by the time I got up, it was sunny and beautiful with plenty of time for things to dry out before our start time. Drove to the location, still mostly sunny. Arrived with the ground pretty much dry. Went over the shot list; all but one were exteriors. And then, the clouds came in. Full overcast for the rest of the day. Called it quits around noon. Even the interior came out looking like crap; amazing how well overcast skies bloom right through the windows regardless of how well you light the space.
Hopefully the 4th time, this Monday, will be the charm.
You got it lucky.
I'm an aerial photographer, I live by the weather forecast. Getting it wrong costs me lots of money.
I can be an hours flying from a site, timing that for the gap in the clouds is an art.
Then of course you get the local effect, big Cities will kick off their own cloud, You can take off in clear blue 10 mins from London, when you arrive 50% cloud and poor visibility.
There's another thing poor vis, try telling the client that beautiful cloudless day wasn't good enough for flying!
I have little sympathy for you ground based photogs, bad weather forecasts costs me thousands every year!!!! :-)http://kevinallen.photodeck.com/-/galleries/london-aerial-views
