Ominous Looking Clouds

Create moody, threatening looking scenes

Props

  • Scary looking clouds

Composition

  • Fill the frame with clouds and put land and buildings down the bottom, only taking up a small amount of space.

Instructions

  • You'll usually want to underexpose the image i.e. make it look darker. Doing this will increase the contrast within the clouds and draw attention to them
  • The easiest way to do this is to use the exposure compensation button, which is a +/- symbol.
  • Start with -1 exposure compensation, then try adjusting it up or down until you find the setting which makes the clouds look the scariest.
