A lot of us do not like the rain for one reason or another, whether it is the fact that we simply do not enjoy getting wet (that would be me) or because we want to protect the thousands of dollars we have invested in sometimes delicate equipment. Still, there is a lot to be gained by occasionally venturing into the rain with your camera, and this awesome video discusses why you might want to try it yourself.
Coming to you from Simon Baxter, this thoughtful video discusses why you might want to consider shooting in the rain more often. We had a record amount of rain here in Cleveland this spring, and it rained virtually every single day for three straight months, making it extraordinarily difficult to get out and do any sort of photography in the traditional sense. I went a few weeks of not pulling my camera out of the bag before I started to get a bit antsy and just bit the bullet and went out shooting. Once I learned to embrace the conditions, I quickly found lots of unique shots afforded by them that I would never have dreamed of in nicer weather. Check out the video above for Baxter's full thoughts.
