Crazy weather now days! When it should be cold, it’s hot. When it should be hot it’s cold. We learn to compromise and adjust. .
I love moody atmospheric shots and a light rain, or early morning fog gives just that opportunity. Rain (in moderation) presents a whole different set of challenges for photography. I'm dealing with the number one concern - You! One should be dressing for the occasion to start with, but having these extras with you can be invaluable when traveling in a car.
My own vehicle ‘’suitcase’’ contains:
Light weight rain pants
Rain coat (a poncho is great for emergencies!)
For snow: Shoe treads for traction and to help prevent slipping!
Water and energy snacks.
A fun experience can take a pretty rapid about turn if you are not prepared. Camera equipment needs to be protected too! While they have the covers specially made to fit over the body and lens, in a pinch, a good old plastic shopping bag can be used.
The main thing of course, is have fun and be safe...and dry:)
