It's hard shooting in the rain. Pouring rain is even worse. But I like finding people in the rain. Usually there is no cover where the best pictures are. Last year I had two umbrellas blow out, and I swore I would find a new way to shoot in the rain.
With the rainy season not even really upon us yet, my goal last Tuesday, when it was dumping all day, was to find a great weather photo from my driver's side window. Of course I was prepared to jump out if a situation really presented itself, but I was going to stick to my plan and shoot through the window. It was a small photo challenge.
I went to several spots where flooding occurs but had no luck with people. I drove up Harbor Boulevard, but was honked out of position several times, even with my hazards on. I decided to drive down to 19th Street and see how bad it was there. It was raining super hard and not many people were out. I made a left onto Pomona where the Smart & Final is, hoping for people exiting the market.
