I was having a quiet vacation with my family in our summer cottage last week, when suddenly the sky turned dark grey and it started to rain so heavily, that I had ever before seen such waterfall from the sky.
And it didn't stop. It just rained, and rained, and rained. Our backyard seemed so fresh and beautiful behind the watery curtain, that I grabbed my camera, opened the window and started to shoot.
I tried everything, slower shutter speed, faster shutter speed, auto focusing, manual focusing, but all I got was our beautiful green backyard and a little bit darkish sky. That's all. No raindrops, no smoky rain lines, nothing. Just a little bit cloudy summer day.
I found here some great rainshoots. How are, you guys, doing it? How do you freeze those drops on your photos?
I need some good advice for the next weepy day.
