Photographing Petroglyphs (rock art) in bad light ?
Apr 8, 2014

Hello all.  I will be traveling to the Southwest next week for 10 days (with my D800 I really want to get some pictures of petroglyphs (native American rock art) like the below.  From what I read, it is actually best to take pictures on a sunny day in the afternoon.  But, looks like overcast weather when I'll be around.  I'm wondering if it is cloudy, how will the pics look?  I know the colors may not be as vibrant compared to full sun, but is it a big enough difference to bypass them altogether.  I'm sure Photoshop could assist, but I don't want to spend an excessive amount of time in post processing.

want to spend to much time in that to look like a lot/any light is illuminating the art/rocks.   Here is a pic of what I'm talking about:
