Photographing Rainbows - To help you capture a rainbow we've put together some quick tips and pieces of advice so when one does finally appear you'll be ready!
Unless you have a rainbow that looks like it's been plucked right out of a children's story book the chances are it will look boring on its own. To take a successful rainbow shot, have it frame another dominant object. Rainbows are faint things too so look for dark backgrounds that can enhance the colours. Storm clouds are perfect and as rainbows need falling water/mist and sunlight most of the time you have a good background served to you on a plate. Be careful not to meter off the dark sky though as this will cause your rainbow to lose its vibrancy.
