    Shooting in the rain!

    I've always wanted to do a photoshoot in the rain and today I have an opportunity to. Its not heavy rain.. Id say a 4/10. I'm pretty sure I can just throw some ziplock bags on my speedlights to keep them covered and I've been trying to think of ways to cover my camera and lens with maybe clear kitchen wrap? Any ideas?

    You can take a plastic bag and put a couple holes in it. One goes under the eye cup and the other under the lens hood. Or you could do the smart thing and find a spot to shoot where the model gets wet, but the photographer gets to stay dry. Maybe near a restaurant where they have an overhang and those nice outdoor heaters...yeah, that sounds pretty good.

    Umbrella especially if you are using a tripod.

    Personally I don't bother. I used to use plastic bags and all that stuff but it becomes a nuisance. I just use my camera and dry the outside later. Never had any evidence of water in the camera yet and it's been soaked at times.

    Was set up in one of those walk through tunnels that go through hills and stuff. The complaint was the "type" of pictures we were taking. I know the guy who complained was this old guy who walked by who prolly thought we were making porn or something. The cop asked me for my permit to which i replied i dont have one. He goes well you need a permit to do commercial work, this is a public area. I said well im NOT doing commercial work. hes like still.. I wasnt gonna argue with him and make matters worst but sparing the details we were escorted out by 3 cops and our names taken down. No citations or anything.. They were pretty nice, just sucked we didnt get to finish.

    A prudish society where you can't get your cans out in public.

    I'm with Herc sounds like the sort of photo which I'd have to carefully examine - for moralities sake of course.

    I don't like shooting in the rain, I've tried bags and umbrellas and it takes all the fun out of shooting and I don't like the wet blurry distant objects. But then that's me with landscapes - a wet model like you had might change my mind.
