    Default Ti Or Or

    How do you guys cope with wet weather? Especially light drizzles when you're having a holiday. Sometimes you just don't have the time to go back twice to take a better shot. How to keep the camera away from water?

    Sometimes better shots can be taken during undesirable weather.

    Photography is not abt rushing to a scene, snap a shot, then go home. You need to be patience when doing photography, prepare to spend a lot more time than you can imagine.

    Where got time? Shoot first, talk later

    Anyway mostly I dunk it under my shirt or behind my back when walking, if very light drizzle, mostly I just carry as normal, why I dare?

    Cos it's been mummified already

    Go check out local documentary photog Ming's work entitled Rain.. it will tell you that even in bad weather, you still get a different perspective.

    Here's my humble take:

    clear shower caps for the bathroom would do well too, if you know where to get them, let me know. best would be those with drawstrings to adjust for the lens shaft.

    what's Ti or Or?

    buy an Olympus E1. if it gets muddy or sandy, just run it under the shower. this has been tested so i believe the guy who did it & told me.
