Weather is one of the main factors that photographers concern the most on a shooting day. Not entirely because of the precaution needs to be done to protect your precious gear, not because of the slower shutter speed and higher iso settings that may degrade images; It is the wrong psychological signal sent to your mind that poor weather (strictly speaking heavy rain) keeps you from being active. As a normal sane person, who wants to go out when raining? It just ruin the mood.
Many have stated photographs shot in the rain turned out to be some of their favorites. I concur. It’s the determination that drives you to work harder, to get something done on a day that you’re not supposed to be shooting.
To me what I see about the weather affects me is also the same as how it affects the others in their environment. It’s a realistic way to observe how people react to the mother nature. Therefore in rain, It’s an honest way to capture the lives that are surrounding us. I would only do it once in a while (of course when motivated enough to get yourself wet!)
Are you ready to get wet?
