Yesterday, a proper rainstorm blew through, so I seized the opportunity to experiment: I wanted to see if I could capture the raindrops as they fell. So I grabbed my camera and stood on our front porch, and started snapping away.
Here's some of what I got.
When you don't have to leave home, there is seriously no better weather in the world.
Images: Photographed with my Nikon D300, 50mm lens. aperture 1.4, shutter speed 1/4000, ISO 640. The results are almost what I was going for, but not quite. I do believe, however, that the trick is a very fast shutter speed.
