Its another rainy day in the city and most of the time it usually dampens my day, for it keeps me indoor and I can’t take photos as much as I can when the sun is out and shining. Being in the tropics I have to learn to live with the reality that our weather is unpredictable. Though sometimes I have this urge to take shots but it’s rainy outside, so what to do?
Shoot under a cover
Yup, very simple. You can do it under an umbrella though that poses another challenge having to hold the umbrella on one hand and shoot with the other. Though if you have a camera bag that is on your back you can try to rig the handle of the umbrella to your bag. You can also shoot under a roof or an awning, though I usually use my telephoto lens when I do take shots. I usually take photos of raindrops on objects or the expression of people have on their faces when it rains.
That is another option as you can do it indoors. You can go and take photos of items like your collections or if you have plants indoors take a shot of the leaves or petals of the flower. Sometimes I take product shots during the rainy days.
Those are just a couple of ways to keep shooting even if it is raining outside.
