Let It Rain!

Last month, I visited the St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Cathedral in Milwaukee to capture photograph of the interior of the church. When I take pictures of interior spaces with windows (particularly stained glass windows), I hope for overcast conditions. So, I was very pleased that I was driving through a light rain on my way to this church!

The rain isn't ideal for the exterior shots...

Note the detail and colors contained within the stained glass windows. This is not possible when bright sunlight is streaming through the windows--even with extreme bracketing of the exposures.

I tend to check the weather forecast and look at the sky even when shooting inside.
