Photo Tip “Bad Weather?!“

“There is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothing.“ Bear appropriate clothing in mind, even for bad weather, as that is when many photographers withdraw indoors. You, on the other hand, can capture striking images of objects that in good weather conditions wouldn’t be half as impressive. Every type of weather has its own appeal, be it the morning fog that reduces contrast or the warm lighting on late summer’s day. The rain slicked streets become dark and in backlighting turn into glistening rivers of light.

The moments before the storm: the sky turns dark and several beams of light just manage to break through the bed of clouds. When the wind whistles through the bed of clouds and makes way for the sun. The sandstorm that paints an ochre picture that is only very slightly interrupted by other colours.

Take care of your equipment! Cameras are very sensitive to moisture and dust.

Protect your camera and lens against dust and moisture

  • Underwater camera housings (+ optimum protection and usability – high prices)
  • Protective bags
  • Rain covers for camera and lens
  • Umbrella
  • Etc.
