Shootin’ in the rain
When you get caught up in a rainstorm, start shooting immediately after the rain stops. As the sun emerges and peeks through darker storm clouds, you’ll be presented with stunning photo opportunities. Clouds after rain are very dramatic, and the still air will give way to pristine reflections and glistening greenery. In torrential weather, though, don’t get carried away and damage your kit in the process. Many camera bags come with a waterproof cover, so use them if it really starts to pour. You can protect your lenses to a certain degree with a lens hood, but it’s worth investing in a basic rain cover so that you can carry on shooting.
Dress yourself – and your camera – for the weather
