    I've had two shoots recently completely disrupted by a sudden turn in the weather.

    Where do you guys go when rain ruins your plans for a shoot? I'm talking mainly for fashion, glamour and portrait work here.

    Turn it into a rainwear shoot.. brollies and wellies or a 'trash' glamour shoot.. make-up running down face, clinging clothes etc Smile


    I've had the same problem so I feel for you. I now try to find a location with some shelter nearby, not necessarily indoors as such but if I'm going for an urban look then an underpass etc, I recently did one at a stately home which had some nice small covered seating areas in the gardens which enabled us to do some shots whilst we waited for the rain to stop.

    Not practical for a lot of people, but I try to shoot as local a pos, if the weathers is foul, head back to my house, a) I have a home studio (I realise many haven't) b) there is usually something to be used, garage, kitchen, doorway, windows - often models are best at spotting posing locations because I'm just to use to seeing them

    Do some still life shots indoor.

    I am thinking that I should go to a antique fair and buy something to photograph
    then sell them, to buy more, and continue.


    Umrellas may keep the models dry, if that's what they want.
    Some go with the flow and enjoy the rough weather.
    A rain storm can mess with your planned shoot but could turn out to be a blessing in disguise and add a whole new mood to the shots.
    If the models aren't willing to go on, book for another day or week BUT if you planned for the unexpected and you keep the camera dry go with the flow, let the models have fun in the rain and capture their fun with as many shots as you can, then head for somewhere to dry out.
