How To Photograph In Bad Weather?

Bad weather is one of the challenges for travel photography. This is especially disappointing when you are travelling on vacation and you have only that one day to be at that particular place.  

So, don’t let bad weather stop you from photographing. Be creative. Here are some examples to create images while waiting for the rain to stop.

Look for some point of interest such as colours and people's expressions or gestures which usually would liven the dull scene of poor or bad weather. 

Avoid the sky as much as possible if there is not much texture in the cloud to create something dramatic. Instead, look for interesting subjects without getting the sky in the picture.

Sometimes you might want the dull sky in the picture too, to show the mood and ambience of the actual situation of that moment.
