I had this great plan to do a photo walk after work. Next time I’ll check the weather before I plan, LOL. But as the rain let up before it got too dark, I wasn’t too disappointed. I’ve enjoyed the “challenge” of shooting rain drops.
I say “challenge” because it can be frustrating. The slightest breeze or movement of the plant will ruing an image or I just have to sit and wait. However, all I need is one good image, so I shoot several and hope that the movement is slow enough for the shutter speed or that I capture the movement at the apex, where it stalls momentarily. I was using a tripod, which was necessary today, as it’s too dark to shoot hand-held. I did use live view to get the focus just right (or just right until the subject moved! lol). Anyway, I may have to invest in an inexpensive ring light/flash so I can use faster shutter speeds.
