Pale

For some reason I still struggle to take photos I am pleased with on overcast days. I feel like it shouldn't be that difficult and yet I continue to end up with photos that just don't feel right.

  2. I'm the opposite - I never feel that mu super sunny photos look all that right. But I think these came out really well - I love that top paired with those pants.

  4. I love taking pictures on overcast days. That is my favorite time for a shoot. It doesn't always work out that way, though.

  13. Your pictures look just lovely! I know the feeling though--sometimes, I must take pictures at my house instead of at the place I usually do and they just never feel quite the same.

    The top with those pastel shorts make you look like a sweet buttercream cupcake of some sort. :D

  17. Super chic! From the top knot bun to the cool light pink pants. You look wonderful I wish I owned at least your blouse so I could achieve this look.

  18. I like the lace top. It is hard to take good pictures when it is cloudy, at least for me.

  22. Pink pants are my new black these days! I like how you match it with laced top. Very romantic like. :) I like how you style so nicely with lots of TJ Maxx products. I often shop at stores like Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Ross too.. you never know what you can find in there... like a treasure hunting. ;)

  34. I think your photos look beautiful, and so does your soft pink and white look. I'm going to have to pair my pink jeans with a white top, I really like this!

  35. Love this top! It looks great with the pink pants.
    Have you tried messing with the white balance on your camera? Mine has one for 'overcast days' and it makes all my outdoor shots look better.

  36. Those pants are the PRETTIEST color. Love them!

  37. I too have the worst time with photos on overcast days - mine either end up way too dark or overexposed. But I actually really like your photos! (And the outfit, of course!) A few of them have a slightly blurry, vintage-y feel to them, which is pretty.

  38. This top is the cutest!

  42. This is majorly cute... and I don't know why I'm only getting this post now. Weird things have been happening with all of my readers lately. I don't know which one to use any more.

    I feel like my skin looks green when it's overcast. And really pale. And my bokeh isn't nice either. And...

    I could keep going. I don't know. Maybe I should try that grey card.

  43. You generally need to overexpose by 1/3 stop on an overcast day. I personally love overcast days way better than sunny days - it's like a giant diffuser. Partly cloudy is the best though. Try using a tone curve bump to bring up your mid tones in post, that will help a lot.

    I love the outfit!
