When it rains usually there is less available light – so on rainy days I chose lenses with a large maximum aperture to gather as much light as possible. The following photos were usually shot with the Fuji X-T2 with the XF23mm F1.4 lens and the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II with the Panasonic Leica Nocticron lens. Both combinations are not weather sealed (well, the Fuji cam is but not the lens) so I took the photos with one hand while holding the umbrella in the other hand.
Photos at daylight
Here are some examples from Osaka and Kyoto at daylight:
Photos at night
These are some impressions from the walks I took at night, again from Osaka and Kyoto:
I hope you enjoyed the photos. Most people put their cameras into their bags when it starts to rain but you can make quite interesting photos and some rain drops don’t hurt the camera – try it out.
