Sometimes it's good to take a break from photography, make use of the rainy days to do something else around the house that does not involve the camera. :)

Get rugged up, wrap a plastic bag around your camera and go out in the weather.
Plenty of great pics have been taken when it's hosing down.

Rain fell on the parade. Used a four-year-old backup camera and a used lens, went outdoors, sat in the rain and took pictures. The rain didn't delay or stop the parade, and it didn't stop these pictures. Sometimes, you need to confront adverse conditions to get something done.

+1 on the food idea.

+2 on the food thing. I've been working on a cookbook of my favorite recipes that I will publish and give to my kids and grandkids, but I often forget to take photos and that is the biggest impediment to the process. My oldest two grandkids are 12 and 14 and pretty good photographers and much better cooks than I. I'm now inspired on any given rainy day, to make one of the recipes with them and photograph it together. It would be fun to have pics of them preparing MY recipes, or having them photograph me, as I am never in front of the camera, always behind. Thanks for the inspiration!

On a day when I can't get out and shoot, I usually take pictures of the cat.

There's a whole thread on setups and results where you could get tons of great ideas for indoors-in-the-rain shooting...just the first few pages alone are gonna give you enough for a rainy day.


The "Show me Thread"


If anything simply reading the whole thread should kill some time for you.


The only stupid question is the one that goes unasked - Photographers shoot to thrill, not to kill
