Melbourne was really quite wet on Monday night. For me, this would – and has – meant a night inside, with taking photos being very low on the priority list. However, I felt like doing something different.
Taking Photos in the rain
First, you need to have the right weather sealed gear. That includes personal clothing and quality camera hardware. For these shots, most were taken with my 70-200L lens, L generally meaning high quality and weather sealed. And on my 5D2, which is able to cop a shower. The other important element was a big lens hood to protect from sideways rain. I do have wider lenses, but they would have copped too much water on the glass, which is something I wasn’t really wanting.
