Essential rainy season photography guidelines
During rainy season and wet weather, water effects can provide some fabulous moods and situations for photography. However, safeguarding camera is rainy season is most important.

Make sure your camera bag is completely waterproof. Have some plastic zip lock pouch bag to cover your entire camera except the lens. Also, have the necessary rain gear like umbrella, and wind cheaters handy. Always have your camera strap on when shooting in rain and after rain.

According to serious photographers, rainy season photography affords lots of subject to shoot including wet weather scenes as landscape, portrait, reflections or macro photos of rain drops and water bubbles, splashes or ripples. Rains also provide the occasion for cloud, umbrellas, wild mushroom and seasonal insect photography.

Every place has its own charm during rainy season, therefore, for good photo opportunities travel around to catch different places and scenes. Make rain photography a part of the overall fun, not an end in itself by feeling free to venture out.

Serious hobbyists take several shots of the same subject, trying different angles and exposures. Note the location, time of day, lens used, aperture and shutter speed as soon as you take the photograph. Experimentation is essential for moving towards better shots during rainy season.

Monsoons present umpteen opportunities for photographing both events and the nature. The nature during monsoon looks beautiful due to striking colours and sharpness. Rainy season conveys a soft mood. And you may like to experiment with Black/White or Sepia mode for a few shots, if the camera permits.
