"Chilling in the garment district" Rufus from Canines and Couture
Welcome to week 55 for NewfandHound's post in the Black and White Sunday blog hop. Thank you to our hosts My Life In Blog Years and Dachshund Nola for setting us up with this fabulous blog hop each week! Please see one of their sites for information on how to join and the rules for posting a picture.
I've been checking the weather report daily to see if it is going to rain when I'm up in Seattle in a few weeks to shoot a German Shepherd trial and wouldn't you know it, "showers" are likely. So, I'm sitting here wondering how I'm going to protect my gear if it does happen to sprinkle and found these helpful tips to share:
- National Geographic photographer, Jim Richardson, has several excellent tips on gear and shooting in the rain in the article Taking Photos In The Rain.
- Check out this selection of rain covers at Outdoor Photography Gear.
- No excuses not to have a Rainsleeve in your bag considering they are less than $10. Also an absorbent towel.
- Chosing the Right Rain Cover For Your Gear at Nature Photographers is an excellent article if you plan to invest in a good quality rain cover that will last a few years.
- What if your camera gets wet? The article When Cameras Get Wet; Things To Do After a Dousing by Shutterbug is a great article to read before it happens! You may be able to salvage your gear!
What do you do to protect your gear when you shoot in the rain or snow?
