Hello MI Photography Lovers..
Greetings from PHOTOGRAPHY Team.! On a rainy day, the last thing you probably want to do is head outdoors to shoot photos. But rain is actually a great gift for us smartphone photographers, providing us with many interesting and creative photo opportunities. The good news is that you don’t have to shoot in the pouring rain – you can wait for the rain to stop, and you can even take great pictures from indoors. In this tutorial you’ll discover five fun and creative ways to capture amazing smartphone photos in rainy weather.
1. Shoot Through Raindrops On Windows
Raindrops on windows offer a great opportunity for creative smartphone photography. And since you need to be on the inside of the window, you don’t have to stand out in the rain to take your shot.
You can also capture these shots after the rain has stopped as the droplet formations will remain on the glass for some time.
2. Capture Reflections In Water Droplets
If you take a close look at water droplets, you’ll often notice tiny reflections within the droplets. They’re especially noticeable when the water droplets are on windows or metallic reflective surfaces such as cars.
In the photo above used a side window of a car to capture both a person reflection in the glass and also the tiny reflections in the water droplets.
To capture the detail in these tiny reflections, you’ll need to get quite close to the water droplets. If you have a macro lens, use it to take extreme close ups that will capture incredible detail in the water reflections.
For the best results, ensure there’s something interesting being reflected in the water droplets, for example, an iconic building, a tree, a car, or a person.
3. Look For People With Umbrellas
On a rainy day, you’ll find an abundance of umbrellas which make great additions to your photos. They add a splash of color and a strong geometric shape to your images.
Umbrellas are also great for creating a sense of mystery and intrigue in your images because they hide the faces of your subjects.
Rain typically creates a dark, gray mood, so a colorful umbrella will appear especially vibrant against these surroundings.
4. Photograph Water Splashes
Rain provides some great opportunities for capturing amazing water splash photos. Photographing someone jumping into a puddle is an easy way to create a unique action shot with your smartphone.
5. Back -Light Rain At Night
Rain provides another some great opportunities for capturing awesome Back - Light rain moments photo at night.
Place your subject between you and the street light for a dramatic, back-lit effect.
Play with exposure on your smartphone to get a bright light or a darker image.
