30 Foul Weather Photos for Inspiration

This week I want to give you a little push to get out of your comfort zone. Turn of the television and get outside and shoot – no matter what the weather. As a matter a fact, in spite of the weather is even better!

Take your photography up a level

Many photographers pack up their gear and head home at the slightest sight of inclement weather. But some of the very best and most dramatic images are to be had if you are willing to brave the elements. Just make sure you are prepared and stay safe. Take the follow precautions:

  • a rain cover for your bag
  • a rain cover for your camera, it’s not water proof!
  • rain gear and boots for yourself, there’s nothing more uncomfortable than being wet or cold or both
  • stay a safe distance away of lighting – you are after all carrying with you a lighting rod (tripod)

Having said that, I hope these images inspire you to do what most others do not as this will almost certainly take your photography up a notch. Being willing to do what’s hard or unpopular is the key to standing apart and making some “wow” images to amaze your friends.

Here are 30 foul weather photos by photographers who did just that, enjoy!
