How to Take Photographs While it’s Snowing or Raining
A plastic solo cup is a perfect solution to prevent snow and rain from ruining your photographs by landing on your camera’s lens. Remember to do your measurements before you start to cut the plastic cup. The bottom of a Heavenly Donuts plastic coffee cup fits perfectly around my Nikon 52MM lens.
I cut a whole into the bottom of the cup the circumference of my camera lens after I gathered measurements for my camera’s lens. I then cut the cylinder part of the cup to stick out no more than 2 inches to prevent it from getting in the shot of my photographs.
You can use a see-through cup, or to control the amount of light in a shot use a solid colored plastic cup. Different colored cups will produce different effects to your photos.
The materials for this project include:
– Clear/Solid Plastic Solo Cup
– Razor Blade
– 12’’ Ruler
The photographs in this blog post I captured with Nikon’s D3200 and edited them with Photoshop.
