Here's a look from my window this morning. No blue skies just wetness on the streets. I used my wife's point and shoot camera. It's the Canon PowerShot A100 IS. If anyone is in the market to buy a digital camera to lug around to parties and other events, be sure to get one that offers IS (Image Stabilization). IS is Canon's way of saying anti-shake. Every company has their own way of saying 'help me keep my photos sharp.'
What does rain have to offer photographers? Wet asphalt, concrete and other surfaces offer cool reflections. And shooting in rain helps you practice your setting adjustments. Plus, you're outside. That's always a bonus : )
I'm heading out and going to experiment during lunch and see what we come up with. Stay tuned.
