Our day at the Flower & Garden Festival this year was a very overcast day. While this gives you flat lighting it often means the backgrounds suck because the sky is an ugly grey. This meant I mostly stuck to my Nikon 70-200 2.8 (a lens I should use more anyway) to create tighter framings and compress the frame on some sort of interesting background. Here’s one of the Buzz Lightyear topiary against Mission Space with the grey sky mostly eliminated. The flat lighting from the overcast sky does look pretty great on Buzz I think. Enjoy.
