The monthly theme for February is ‘The Weather ‘. It’s on our doorstep and is as topical as ever and one we experience every day. March is well known for being a windy month and we’ve certain had plenty of wind and rain in the past few weeks. Photographing the weather creatively requires a little thought to get away from the standard record shot. This topic gives you as much variety as types of weather we experience. In the case of wind it’s a case of photographing the effects of it’s power. You could simply photograph your washing blowing in the wind backlit and with a dramatic angle. Experiment with different shutter speeds for effect. You can photograph rain in many different ways. Try to freeze backlit rain drops against a dark background so they stand out. Or out of focus raindrops on a window can be very effective. Then there’s always the moody storm clouds rolling in to give you a dramatic scene. We might even have some bright sunny days to tempt you to reach for your polarising filter for some highly saturated images.
