    Default How do u photography a rainbow?

    Haiz...

    today missed a great opportunity to take photos of a rainbow...
    but then again... aint really sure how to photograph one anyway.

    Think that to photograph the sky.. will prob need to set expososure correction to +1? Perhaps add in a poloraiser to enrich color?

    Any other steps that you can suggests?

    I have taken rainbows before (2 of them), one is real powerful in that there is a secondary rainbow visible.....but problem is that the background sucks. Where can you get a good background in Singapore anyway when you need it instantly. So rainbow is great, the background is not.

    I just use matrix metering and shoot, look at the histogram.

    And if it's a full rainbow, you gotta use at least 15mm on dSLRs with 1.5 crop, or 20mm in 35mm terms.

    A polarizer can sometimes enhance the appearance of the rainbow.
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    I thought it would make the rainbow (or certain colours of it) disappear?
