What do you do on a totally overcast morning with light rain? Put a rain cover on your camera and go out anyway! The humid days bring stormy nights here in the southeastern United States. The rainfall from last evening has held on through the night into this morning. But I’ve made a personal challenge to go birding and shooting (photographs) every day throughout the month. So what do I do facing the light rain? Get out there anyway! I haven’t spent the money on a commercial rain cover... continue reading

If you have ever been taking landscape photographs in the rain you will know how difficult it is to manage all your camera gear plus keep it, and yourself, dry. There are a number of options including seven mentioned here. Many involve covering your camera with plastic and/or holding an umbrella over yourself and your camera set up. I have found that holding an umbrella limits my hand freedom to adjust the tripod and camera controls. I have also tried the plastic coverings but found them somewhat... continue reading

I often struggle with lighting on my photos; particularly those taken indoors. The layout of my house is not so good, and our weather is often so dark and dreary that very little light comes in the windows anyway. Sometimes it is so dark that the best shutter speed I can get (to allow for the depth of field I want) with natural light is 5 seconds!I have a hotshoe flash, and have tried bouncing it off the ceiling, and using white paper to try and bounce the light back.
