    Default rain photography

    Hey guys I thought it would be a good idea to shoot out when it's raining to capture some really dramatic shots in the rain. My dslr is weather sealed But the lens is not,so I am thinking of getting a rain cover. With a raincover (front element exposed), is it safe to bring my gear out provided it is coated with an uv filter? do I need more precautions? thanks!

    use a telephoto lens, and shoot from indoors.

    The white NTUC plastic not nice lar, the fruits section's translucent plastic bag looks nicer


    That said, my friend used the translucent plastic bag and put the cam (MFT) in, make a opening at the lens portion, screw the filter over the opening. His camera still alive after the foam party where he got almost drenched completely. *Not sure if it will fit a standard sized dslr*

    with longer focal lengths, you can isolate the subjects even more

    It looked like a guy wearing a dress

    But yea, if you don't wanna go thru the hassle of getting drenched then a telephoto lens will work better.

    A 500mm lens would be great
