Rainy Day Photography

Rainy days are great for saturating colors in a photo.

If you live in the northeastern U.S. like I do, it lately seems as if it rains every day. Bad weather can be less than inspiring for some photographers, but I love it, especially this time of year when wildflowers are blooming, there are fresh leaves on the trees, and mountain streams are chock full of rushing water. And getting out from behind my computer and out in the woods always lifts my spirits, whether the weather is nice or not. It rained for much of the last two days as I did dome scouting for my upcoming Vermont photo workshop, and it seemed the ideal time to make a quick video with some rainy day photo tips. You can see it below:

You can see some of the pictures I took while shooting the video on my Facebook page.

Until next time...



    Great article. I’m heading to Yellowstone next month, and the current forecasts are nothing but showers everyday. If that continues, I need to be prepared to shoot in these conditions (for the first time). Thanks for the great tips – very helpful.
