dPS Weekly Photography Challenge Rain

Rain! There’s a lot of it around right now (Depending on where you are obviously) so let’s see your take on this week’s photography challenge theme ‘Rain’ I chose to photograph the raindrops that had run down my window all afternoon, with a macro lens.

#dPSRAIN is the hashtag for this week’s challenge if you’re posting on social media (make sure you follow us!)

If you live somewhere that it’s not raining, and there’s no rain forecast, you can bend the rules and do ‘water’ in general. (Hey, a garden hose and some creativity and you’re making your own rain!) when photographing rain (or water) remember that it looks good with light shining through it, or maybe as a reflective pool, perhaps even glistening on some skin, the options aren’t endless, but with a little creativity, there are a lot of them!

You can opt to capture a detail (top and below) or a whole scene (above) for this theme, really whatever takes your fancy.
