Saving a bad weather situation with Photoshop
For one of the lifestyle shooting days in Miami we rented a sailboat and went out early in the morning with two models, hoping to beat the bad weather that was predicted for later in the day. The day deteriorated sooner than we expected and the sun was dipping in and out of large cloud cover as a storm approached us off in the distance. Not much else to do by shoot fast and hope to deal with it later in Photoshop. In the days of film this would have been a disaster, but in the digital age it is business as usual. A sketchy weather prediction fifteen years ago would have led me to cancel the shoot instead of taking a chance.
