How to Photograph in Bad Weather

Bad weather can be a pain to work in, but it can also yield powerful and unique images. Before you head out, though, there are a few things worth considering to make sure you can protect your equipment from the elements. This great video discusses both why you should consider photographing in bad weather and how to do it.

Coming to you from aows, this awesome video discusses how to take images in bad weather and why that can actually be a great idea! One of the easiest and cheapest ways to add a level of protection to your gear is to use a rain sleeve, which fits over your camera and lens and has a drawstring to create a seal. They are so cheap that I keep a few in my bag just in case I ever need them unexpectedly. Even if your equipment is weather-resistant, it is important to remember that weather-resistant is not the same as weather-proof, and as such, it never hurts to add an extra bit of protection. It is also good to remember that many lenses only have complete weather-resistance when you add a UV filter. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
