Hello, Photoion students and photography fans. It’s time for another Photo of the Month competition.

Every month we run a competition with a new theme with the chance for you to win £100 in Photoion course vouchers.

This month’s topic will be Rain Photography

At first thought, you may think rain photography will be a difficult thing to accomplish. Standing out in the rain waiting to capture image can be a tiring and frustrating process, but rain offers some amazing opportunities.

Here are a few tips to help you take the best images possible:

Contrast: Rain and inclement weather can create a dull backdrop to your images, so choosing a vibrant and colourful subject creates an immediate and striking contrast.

Experiment with shutter speed: If you’re capturing an image of a static subject, experiment with your shutter speed to create otherworldly effects as the rain streaks down the image.

Get close: Macro photography is great in the rain, getting close to your subject and capturing all the individual raindrops can create some beautiful images.
