    It's wet season here, which means it rains. A lot. Sometimes it's a drizzle, other times its a downpour. It's summer in Britain too, which probably means its raining there quite a lot too!

    But - I haven't been on a shoot for ages. And I have two days free this week - for which I predict it will rain solidly. I don't want to sit in my house with a lightbox again, either, I just kinda wanna get out and shoot on the streets.

    Does anyone actually enjoy taking photo's in the rain? Anyone had any great shots from a rainy day that they'd like to share for inspiration? Or any great tips/techniques for shooting in the rain?

    When its raining - what do you look for? What kind of rainy day things make great shots? What can make my planned rainy day shoot a success?

    Actually we've had unbroken sunshine for weeks now!! North East UK is already talking about having hosepipe bans!! Grin

    No!! I detest getting wet in the rain!

    But I have seen some wonderful images of folk that don't mind. One in particular is an image which was taken of people hurrying home in the rain, the umbrellas and reflections were wonderful (the photographer had used black and white).

    Here are 10 ideas for rainy days

    My friend Stuart does some good night work in the rain around town using the relections to there best, check out some of his work on here Here.

    There's other things like macro shots of droplets on plants/flowers, lightening (if there is some) or capturing the droplets falling into puddles? You don't have to buy expensive rain covers, a plastic bag will do the trick.

    city scenes at night are good - wet pavements reflect lights in shop windows

    My mate Barry's had some success with this subject too. Try this and this.

    Or you could stay indoors in the dry & do some still life, or something. Smile

    I work indoors all the time. My apartment is pretty much a prison too me right now. Plus still life isn't really my kind of photography - one of the main reasons I like photography is it gets me out and about and forces me to explore news places.

    Plus - the only life of any kind beside me in my 20 square foot, two roomed apartment is the cockroaches. And I'm just too damn scared of the things to photo them (honestly, I'm almost sick when I look at them!). If I'm lucky I could find a gecko - but really I think I'd rather just get wet!

    wow - brilliant image! (as were quite a few of the others linked to so far).

    Thanks guys - actually feeling positive about a day (and now night) in the rain!
