There are plenty such models with some in every category. The highest resistance to inclement weather are waterproof cameras which are all point-and-shoot model with a sealed non-extending lenses. These can even go underwater between 3 to 12m for a minimum of 60 minutes. Weather-poof cameras are sealed against splashes in any direction but are not ...

You need a light toward the back, otherwise known as a hairlight or rimlight. This isn't a light directly behind the camera, but one coming from further back on the side. You can see in the picture you posted that the main light is coming from the back left. This creates the reflections on the raindrops that lets you see them better. As you can see in ...

I can vouch for the Canon 1 series, I've used both the 1Ds mkII and 1D mkIV for extended periods in the driving rain. You need a weather sealed lens, most L series are, you can usually tell by if there's a rubber skirt around the mount. I don't bother with a filter as the lens hoods on the primes I shoot with a really deep and stop water going anywhere near ...

Professional level DSLR cameras many times can be used without issues in the rain. Some of them require a filter to complete the weather sealing of the lens. There isn't necessarily a "kind", just look for "weather sealing" and to what degree it is weather sealed. Note, you would want a lens and a DSLR body that is weather sealed, not just one or the other. ...

SNOWY STREET STYLE AT NEW YORK FASHION WEEK: OUTSIDE RAG & BONE None of the photographers appear to be the same, but this is the event where your photo came from, and the general style of cover looks the same. Just perhaps more tightly wrapped in later photos. Maybe not.. Somebody may well have been selling them on the spot - which would account for the ...

Shooting in the rain is not ideal and typically I avoid it especially when planning a night shot. I guess I am struggling to understand what you need rain/night for? Portraits? Obviously the first major tip I can give you is to use a large umbrella for your gear. You will also need an assistant to help man the umbrella, quickly transition with gear, etc....

There are a few possibilities for interesting results shooting during rain, you can focus on the human angle, using the rain to emphasize or create certain emotions (loneliness, despair etc.) This is particularly effective at night. A very good example of this is the work of Gregory Crewdson, this image in particular: http://fadedandblurred.com/wp-content/...

Shooting at night, rain or not, will require some light from somewhere. That means either the moon, artificial sources, or very long exposures. Shooting before rain will probably focus on shots of incoming clouds, but this will be very tricky in total darkness. It may be possible on a bright, moonlit night though. Shooting during rain will have similar ...

Observe the picture which you posted. First thing that comes to mind are these 2: Use flash High enough shutter speed to freeze the subject, low enough shutter speed to not completely freeze the rain. Try out these two components, and experiment with others as well, like using various filters afterwards, bumping up the highlights, etc.

We had an outside ceremony planned with a couple last year but it absolutely threw it down. It was a Chinese wedding and the bride had planned for two years to have an their ceremony outside. But on the day the heavens opened and we had to accept that things weren't going to be as planned. We retreated inside, but had to do the Bride and Groom portraits in ...

In my experience the combination 60D w/ EF 50mm f/1.8 STM is sealed to a great degree. My family went to Niagara falls during June 2017 and I used it for a tour of the falls from the Canadian side. Reading that this camera had weatherproofing, I used it as my workhorse for pictures and video. The walking section of the tour placed you adjacent to bottom of ...
