I am going to do a blog about photography but related to the weather, position of the sun and moon on a particular day. 

Armature study and game of photography n the elements.

Though days of the week differ every year  

1 Does the moon phases happen the same day of the year all the time  

2 Does the sun rise at the same time on the same date every year 


3 What is a short word that includes the sun, moon and stars?  

"celestial weather photography' .. kind of big   

If you are going to take a pic of things out of the earth of course it depends on the sky conditions. What if it is overcast when the eclipse of 2024 is here 

4 Is their a website that gives all the weather conditions for a particular day?

 There are so many beautiful photos of the clouds .. mostly because people happen to be out when it happened.. but  Cameras keep meta data for exposures...

I thought if a group would post their beautiful pics and include the weather data for the time it was taken, it would be fun to look at the forecast and try to predict a great sky condition.

Here "Hocking Hills" people come far to see the beautiful places with the water falls, but it is only a drip because there has not been much rainfall .


A study of how the weather and celestial conditions effects photography and how to use them to plan photos.

AIR POLLUTION . This would be a factor only if taking pics at a long distance, covered under visibility I suppose.

AIR PRESSURE: BAROMETER measures air pressure. It tells you whether or  not the pressure is rising or falling. A rising barometer means sunny and dry conditions, while a falling barometer means stormy and wet conditions. 


CLOUD TYPE :  cirrus, stratus, cumulus, and nimbus clouds, there are cirrostratus, cirrocumulus, altostratus, altocumulus, stratocumulus, nimbostratus, cumulonimbus. 

I can not identify em 😋 n don't figure most others can. It might be fun to create a slide show n practice. Those in many places could point their cameras at the sky n post em.

COMPASS is a navigational instrument for finding 

directions. Your cameras probably have these or if you are plotting a shoot on your phone or computer it would plot the view.  


DISTANCE of the thing being photographed. (Objects are less clear at a distance) 


HUMIDITY   HYGROMETER measures the water vapor content of air or the humidity. hygrometer WEATHER BALLOON measures weather conditions higher up in the atmosphere. weather-balloon . SLING PSYCHROMETER measures relative humidity  



RAIN %:  GAUGE measures the amount of rain that has fallen 

over a specific time period.  

SKY COVER  the expected amount of opaque clouds (in percent) covering the sky

Solar radiation : PYRANOMETER for measuring  radiation. 




TEMPATURE HERMOMETER measures the air temperature.   

TIME/DATE. Looking at apps or charts shows what celestial conditions will take place for planning a photo shoot.

VISIBILITY : Pollen, Pollution 

WEATHER MAPS indicate atmospheric conditions above a 

large portion of the Earth’s surface. 

WEATHER SATELLITES are used to photograph and 

track large-scale air movements. Then meteorologists 

compile and analyze the data with the help of computers. 

WIND  ANEMOMETER measures wind speed/direction . Chill - WIND SOCK direction/speed. WIND VANE: direction. 


I know little about the weather or clouds but I love photography and would like to create a page on the elements and how to use them.

My page is here 

If you are froggy n have time, I thought about creating a facebook group about photography and the elements
