I remember going to see an afternoon baseball game with friends as a teenager. When we arrived at the stadium, it began to rain. The game was delayed, so we waited and waited and waited. I don’t even remember the actual game. I only remember getting soaked as we sat in our seats and defied mother nature.
Photography can be a similar experience. Although wet weather creates opportunities, it also creates problems. You must deal with lower levels of light, fewer subjects, poor visibility and the risk of moisture damage to your camera.
On rainy days you need to make a decision. Do you accept a delay? Do you play ball? Each situation is different. But if you want to be in the game, you grab your camera, a rain case and an umbrella. And you get the first inning started!
