I shot several frames with different apertures and different shutter speeds as well as different lenses. I was also moving about constantly (because the airship was moving too). As for the cloud cover, I kind of liked the backdrop it gave the airship. Thanks for the input brad.
re: picture of the dirigible... its hard to shoot during overcast skies, is that a single frame you shot? it would be better when shooting with that lighting condition to shoot at different settings or aperture (granting you are on manual mode). open up at half stops so you can see the difference.
ehrm, what's a single frame shot? a one-shot, bahala-na shot?
