fear not the rainy days

One of the questions I get asked quite frequently, is what to do in case of rain on shoot day, and my answer is almost always the same...

I tell the client that they should hope for cloudy skies, because it really does me give me a ton of room for creativity, without trying to steer clear of squinty eyes and such! Sometimes shooting conditions are most beautiful in that 10-15 minutes before the skies break and it pours, so if you're up for the potential adventure, I firmly believe you will be rewarded :)

Now, I feel the need to admit that I have never put too much stock into the weather forecast (especially after many clients have checked the weather on Friday for a Sunday shoot, and rescheduled after seeing a 90% chance of showers, only to find ourselves with a delightfully cloudy, rainless afternoon during the time they would have been shooting).

That being said, someone still pays for the Weather Network to be on TV, so there must be some truth to it. So if there's 90% chance of showers on the day of your shoot and you don't feel inclined to reschedule, maybe it's best to make sure you've got a cute umbrella in your trunk ;)
