Rain | Weekly Photography Challenge

It’s nearly Wimbledon time and you know what that means…..rain. Just when we are starting to feel that summer is upon us the heavens open and along come the downpours. 
Photographing rain can be done in many different ways. You can freeze or blur the movement simply by adjusting your shutter speed. It’s also interesting to photograph rains storms from afar or when you’re right in the middle of one. I you intend to do the latter then make sure you either have a waterproof camera or an umbrella.
Summer rain storms are perhaps the most interesting to photograph as they don’t often last too long and are usually mixed with a bit of sunshine.
After a storm has passed you might want to photograph the after effects of rain, this can be puddles, rainbows or just wet shiny surfaces covered in droplets of water.

This weekly photo challenge is designed to complement our photography basics section the London Mums website. Each week we will set a different theme and your homework is to go out and photograph a collection of images related to that theme.
You can start this challenge whenever you like and do the different themes in any order you see fit. Think of these challenges as a photography workout. Don’t just do them once and not revisit them. If you do start these challenges as you begin our online basics classes then in a few months why not revisit older challenges to see how much better a photographer you have become.

Also try and think outside the box as much as possible. Photography is as much about creative interpretation as it is about technical prowess.
