Avoid shooting pictures in inclement weather? If so, you're passing up many chances to take artistic photos, particularly when it comes to photography. So, to get stunning iPhone street shots in inclement weather, here are some amazing tips to try out!
1 - Take Fascinating iPhone Street Photography in the Rain
Do you avoid snapping pictures on rainy days? If so, you most certainly are not alone! But there are so many incredible options for street photography when it rains.
And what's the best? Even better, no water is required!
I often look for a covered spot to photograph when it rains in the city. Several bus stops, doors, archways, and awnings keep you dry. The fact that people utilize umbrellas is one of the best things about the Rain! Umbrellas' striking design and color palette let you establish a compelling focal point in your photograph. And they're ideal for giving your iPhone street shots an intriguing narrative flavor. So don't stay indoors the next time it rains. Get out into the city to get some fantastic rain photos!
2 - Use Your iPhone to Take Creative Rain Photos
Try taking pictures through the Rain on a window if you want to be truly inventive. You may take pictures of passersby while sitting in a caf and capture through a bus stop's glass. Get aboard a bus and capture the sights as you pass by with your camera via the windows. Getting your camera lens really near to the glass is a terrific method to take artistic window pictures.
After you've set up your photo, press the camera screen to bring the foreground raindrops into sharp focus. The backdrop will seem elegantly blurred when you do this. Additionally, the image will have a lovely abstract character that captivates the observer. As you can see, shooting inclement weather brings a whole new level of inventiveness to street photography.
And after you begin taking photos in the Rain, you could find that this is your preferred type of weather for iPhone street photography!
3 - Take Beautiful Puddle Reflection Pictures
After the Rain stops, you'll have another chance to take some intriguing street pictures. All you have to do is go about the city and search for puddle reflections!
Look for reflections that feature any architecture or structure. These strengthen the composition and give the reflection more interest. To capture more of the reflection in your shot, you will need to stoop low. Don't worry about the odd glances you could receive. You're about to take some very gorgeous pictures! Flip the device upside down to bring the iPhone's lens to the water. When you are satisfied with the composition, change the camera angle.
Take many pictures of everyone passing by as they go across the frame. Burst mode might assist you in capturing the subject in the ideal setting.
Drag the shutter toward the image thumbnail to start burst mode. Alternatively, if you have an earlier iPhone, simply keep the shutter button down.
Until you let go of the shutter button, your iPhone will continue to shoot pictures. The finest photos from the burst may then be selected, and the remainder can be discarded.
4 - Give Your iPhone Reflection Photos A Creative Twist
Try this easy photo editing tip to make your puddle reflection pictures even more intriguing after you've taken them: your photo should be turned upside down to ensure that the reflection is at the top. Any picture editing program lets you accomplish this, including the iPhone's default Photos app.
As the spectator attempts to figure out what's going on, flipping your reflection images results in a more fascinating visual. It's easy to use but highly powerful! The amount of reflection in your shot is the final factor to consider.
You may set up the photo such that the reflection fills half of the frame. This works well to produce eye-catching symmetrical arrangements. However, don't be scared to let the reflection take up most of the frame. In the picture below, I only included the man's legs as he passed by; the rest of the frame is taken up by reflections. A fantastic method to take more distinctive reflection shots is to use unconventional setups like this one.
5 - Photograph Snowy Scenes to Tell Wonderful Stories
My preferred weather for street photography is snow! It radically changes the city, transforming well-known locations into brand-new shooting locations. Additionally, it's ideal for documenting fascinating tales of individuals battling the harsh weather, So bundle up and take your iPhone into the city to get some stunning winter photographs!
Find a suitable location to set up your photo first. I like to visit my regular locations, or "fishing holes," as opposed to always wandering about looking for a scenario. I've taken pictures of these locations many times, so setting up my shoot is simple. I enjoy framing my subject with the city's architecture or setting a fascinating scene in the background.
Your snowy street picture will look fantastic with backdrops of buildings, bridges, and crosswalks. A darker background will help the white snowflakes stand out in your photographs of falling snowflakes.
Once you've located a suitable spot, set up your shot, then wait for a subject to arrive. The ideal candidate will have something visually captivating-something that tells a story-about them. They might be carrying an umbrella, sporting a hat, or bundled up in a vivid coat. They can be exercising on the streets while sweeping away the snow. Or perhaps they appear to struggle against the elements on a chilly winter day based on their body language. As the individual passes, fire a couple of rounds. Alternately, utilize burst mode to take several pictures as the subject passes through the frame.
6 - Modify Exposure for the Best Snow Photos
Remember that snow might change the Exposure (brightness) of your images when you take them in the snow. Your camera can accidentally underexpose the image if the scene is mostly white. This may cause the snow to seem grey in a photograph rather than white. But the good news is here! The Exposure on your iPhone camera is simple to change.
To concentrate on your subject, simply tap on the camera's screen. Then, swipe up to brighten the picture (or down to make it darker). Exposure may also be used to alter the atmosphere of your photographs. To boost Exposure, swipe up to create a light and airy image. Swipe down to crop a photo for one that is gloomy and dismal. Of course, you may also use photo editing software after you take the picture to change the Exposure. But it's best to get it right in front of the camera!
