Black and white photography may work better if you must shoot into an overcast sky. Conversely, a bright blue sky will only enhance your photographs, as long as you are mindful of the light.
Keep the knowledge of the settings on your camera simple. Take your time and master one part of the control, like the shutter speed or aperture, before you move on to the next. Doing this focuses your attention on the image itself, rather than playing with dials while you lose your subject.
