One of my favorite features is "Techniques from the Techs." Tamron's got a pretty remarkable and talented tech team, with each member being an artist in their own right. Each article ties in another aspect of photography. Linked from the new issue of the newsletter, was this short article by Armando Flores.

Meet Tamron's Tech Team

Every time I go out for a day of shooting, like most of us I expect for the light and weather to be perfect, but lets get real, Mother Nature has a mind of her own. A big part of photography has to do with being at the right place, at the right time, and a little bit of luck. We can certainly control the place and time but if you haven’t guessed it, the luck part is the weather.
These past several months I found myself in various places without any luck: smoke filled skies in Montana, thunderstorms in southern Utah, and cloudy overcast skies in other places. This however did not deter me and it shouldn’t deter you either, so if you find yourself in a similar situation look on the bright side, this is a perfect time to shoot Black & White.
Grey dreary overcast skies might take away most of the color, but it will not take away the tonal range. Black & white photography is nothing more than capturing shades of grey anyway.
