In the Absence of Light, Structure is King

Even when the light has finally disappeared, it’s not time to put the camera away yet. Without light all that is left is structure and structure can make for some great images. Spring thunderstorms are great examples as the clouds often form these great masses of drama. The key is to take that image and then in post bring up the structure or the clarity slider to bring out more of the character in the clouds. One of the key elements when composing an image like this is to have very little foreground in the frame. By looking up more and essentially ignoring the rule of the thirds, the focus turns to the clouds and that also helps to make the structure more pronounced.
