Rain Rain Rain

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:

Gloves

Ear muffs

Light weight rain pants

Rain coat (a poncho is great for emergencies!)

Umbrella

Socks

For snow:  Shoe treads for traction and to help prevent slipping! COPYRIGHT_PDennis

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:)

Happy shooting!

Enjoying the word/photo tour starting with "The Christmas Puppy." Would love to watch him grow up in photos. Fun story.
