Take a Picture! – Rain

Wordsmith Studio’s Weekly Photo Prompt

Wordsmith Studio Logo Banner

Welcome to Wordsmith Studio’s Weekly Photo Prompt!  Every Thursday we’ll post a new topic for your photographing pleasure.  When you get a good shot (or three, or five) post them to your blog, website, Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. Then come back and post a link to your photo(s) in the comments.

This Week’s Theme is: Rain

You know what they say… “April showers” and all that. Well, we’re going to take this opportunity to get out our cameras! It’s raining in WV today, and probably where you are, too. I can see the spots starting to appear on the deck right now. Better grab my camera…

Take a Picture!

Watch for the rain! Get your camera ready! Remember that the raindrops are moving pretty fast, so you’ll need to pump up the shutter speed and the ISO on your fancy cameras to get that drop frozen in the air. If you can’t quite catch it, don’t worry. Just find a puddle or some mud or some other evidence of the rain to snap. Every photo you try to take is a little more practice, not to mention a little more FUN! 

Got Ideas?

Do you have suggestions for future “Take A Picture!” posts? Leave us a comment, or email us here.  We ♥LOVE♥ feedback!

Be sure to check back next week for more fun and new inspiration. Also, watch for a collage of “Rain” photos taken by our contributing members!!


Happy Snapping and Photo Fun!

    How about the subject… “Waiting”

    We got just enough rain so I could take a few pictures.

    I completely missed the two days of solid rain we just had, so I had to pull one from the archives. This one was taken last spring.

    I’m late, but what a great prompt. I love how people came up with different stuff. I made my kids nervous snapping this one- I stopped the van in the middle of a curvy, hilly road on the way to school!
