I will be honest, rainy days used to scare me off from shooting photos, but now, the bleak weather makes me smile. In a way, rainy days are fortuitous situations that allow me brilliant photos. I am not a professional photographer, I am a photographer from passion.

One great smartphone and few of my tips will help you really capture those travel photos in the rain!
Rainy weather definitely poses challenges to travel photography, but my smartphone brings things into focus. Lavishly live travel out loud using these tips for taking travel photos in the rain.
Tips for Taking Travel Photos In The Rain
Before I share my tips for taking travel photos in the rain, let me share how to get this all done. This is a sponsored post on behalf of Verizon Wireless. Without Verizon service, reliability just is not possible. Today’s challenges of being able to tackle the tasks at hand are real. Consider Verizon Wireless and allow your resolutions to be maintained by what you own and use most, your smartphones. A smartphone is only as smart as the service provider it’s on, so make sure yours is Verizon Wireless. If you don’t have Verizon, switch! I am a brand partner and a faithful disciple of the brand!

4. Get To Ground Level and Shoot Those Images
This may be from the top down, but get from the ground and shoot up. Sit eye level with all the activity, put the umbrella up, to shield from too much rain, yet, sit and see the small things. The background of where you are changing so much with a simple rainstorm. Before and afters are great captures! Set up camp and sit! Rain backdrops are awesome photos.
5. Rain Clouds Make Great Back Drops
The creepy sky, yet so telltale of what surrounded us in Marco Island. The story we will never forget. Trust me, we were in danger, yet on the water. I photo’d and captured and now we talk about it. It’s one of my prize-winning captures. Use the rain clouds to really make a contrasting background. Often stunning captures.
6. RAIN embellishes colors
After the storm cleared and between another moving in, the color of this photo in Marco Island was just crazy good.

The difference here, on one half of the boat it was storming, yes it was. The other half it was not. The crazy weather can be seen in the sky, and I kept on photo’ing the boys!

Remember, at the end of every rainstorm, take that rainbow!
