Get out and shoot.

Wow, photography is such a wonderful art form! You can capture so many amazing moments and express your creativity in endless ways. But you know what? It doesn't matter what kind of camera you have, as long as you have a passion for taking pictures. The most important thing is to find subjects that inspire you and make you happy. Of course, I always try to get the best equipment I can, because I want to make the most of my hobby. But that's not what defines me as a photographer. It's my vision, my style, and my love for this beautiful medium.
Monsoon season means lots of rain and clouds, which can make it hard to capture the beauty of the outdoors. But don't let that stop you from pursuing your passion! There are many ways to use the monsoon weather to your advantage and create stunning photos. Here are some ideas:
- Experiment with reflections. Raindrops and puddles can create interesting effects on different surfaces, such as glass, metal, or pavement. Try to find angles that show the contrast between the wet and dry areas, or that capture the colours and shapes of the sky and buildings.
- Play with light. The monsoon weather can create dramatic lighting conditions, such as sun rays breaking through the clouds, or flashes of lightning in the dark. Use a fast shutter speed to freeze the motion of the rain or lightning, or a slow shutter speed to create a blur effect. You can also use a flash or a reflector to add some light to your subject.
- Explore indoor scenes. If you don't want to get wet, you can still find interesting subjects indoors. Look for windows that show the rain outside, or that create patterns of light and shadow on the walls. You can also photograph people or objects that relate to the monsoon theme, such as umbrellas, raincoats, or cups of tea.
