Clinic 4 – Moody/Stormy Weather

Submission date: TBA

Shown:  TBA

Description:  Mood is a fairly abstract concept which the dictionary defines as “Inducing or suggestive of a particular feeling or state of mind”. 
A really great image is one that conveys a mood and pulls the viewer into the scene.  But in general, there are certain things that help to create certain moods in your photos.  The image will need to display mood, and clearly depict atmospheric disturbances in the atmosphere.  Atmospheric disturbances are usually short lived and transient.  They can range from Thunder Storms, Lightning, Storm Clouds, to Mid-latitude cyclones, Hurricanes, Tornadoes, even reflections on wet surface following a storm, crashing waves or sunlight breaking through storm clouds.
Both Mood and Stormy Weather must be evident to the viewer of your image.
