A rare day in the bay, when not a cloud is around!
I’m getting back into the swing of things after a month of being a new father. Last week I had an opportunity to shoot for a new client at the Presidio in San Francisco (SF). The day was 72 degrees light wind and no clouds. A perfect 10 for SF standards. So at dusk when I was shooting the exterior of the building and there was not a cloud in the sky, I asked the client if she would want clouds added to the sky for effect. She didn’t have to think too long before she said “no way!” The reason is that a cloudless day in SF is rare and therefore ‘dramatic” in itself. I guess I’ve been shooting in the Sac Valley too long. A blue cloudless sky here is pretty much everyday, a given. It’s funny how clients tastes change within just a 75 miles.
