Light in rainy days
Rainy days are actually very poor in light itself. Rainy days can use "borrowing" methods, such as arranging the model in a darker place and having a brighter light source outside, using brightness and darkness can make the model have the effect of edge light and backlighting, or can also use the lights of the surrounding stores to create backlighting effect, so there are different. The atmosphere also improves the weakness of the light in rainy days and makes the picture more layered than too flat. So we need to pay attention to the source, brightness and direction of the "light", and then put the model L in the light more concentrated place, so evening shooting by analogy of course can also "borrow light", borrowing street lights or sign lights will have similar effect. Since the light source is weak, it is inevitable to use a large aperture f2.8 or even larger, so as to avoid that the dark part cannot be pulled back when it is too dark. ISO must be improved naturally, so that the shutter can be within the safe range. If you are not sure, you need to take more photos just in case. The following pictures are selected from the excellent works of netizens. Let Xiaobian share the joy of using up for you.

Scenery Selection and Composition
It is quite reasonable to hold an umbrella in a rainy day unless you want to photograph the feeling of rain. This is an exception, or take advantage of the rain to snap a few pictures. Rainy day photography is really a physical and spiritual test. Walking on the muddy road everywhere, wet and sticky is actually not too comfortable, sometimes holding an umbrella to pat, sometimes waiting for the rain. The real time and number of shots are bound to be limited. But photography is like this. Feeling right, the shutter keeps pressing. As long as the rain is not too heavy and the umbrella time is not taken freely, the light in rainy days is not good, but at least diffuse light, good contrast control, in fact, there are occasional surprise pictures. In other words, if you want to shoot happily, the results need not be too introduced. Meaning.

Sunshine after Rain
Usually the air seems cleaner after raining, the suspended particles or dust in the air become less temporarily, and it becomes much fresher immediately. Of course, there is sunshine immediately after raining. This weather is more common in summer, that is, the sunshine after thunderstorms in the afternoon. Of course, it can not be denied that such weather is rare. Available. If you are in a natural environment, pay attention to the beads left on the leaves and so on, because those beads will turn into round pearls after passing through the light (although shooting leaves against the light often has similar effects), maybe the difference is that the reflective effect of light on the beads is different. The charm.
