    It's the same method. You think, you compose, you take the shot. Why should the rain limit you? Use it to your advantage. The only thing limiting you here is yourself.

    Take a look at this shot, rain can convey a totally different mood.

    Care to share the settings you used? A shutter speed of about 1/60 should be able to bring out the rain drops

    please don't ask for magic formula, there is none, it depends on how heavy the rain is, distance between you and your subject, any subject movement, and also lighting condition.
    all about experiment, and the effect you want, just shoot and review.

    Like what Benjamin mention in his earlier post. there is no magic formula.

    it depend every much on the lighting, rain & equipment you had to create your intended effect.


    Example below is a shot taken in the rain as well but had a completely different effect than Danny's example.
