    Creative Photo Ideas for March: 07 Shoot a rainbow

    Light rain mixed with sunshine is the ideal time to photograph rainbows.

    You have to be an opportunist when it comes to shooting this short-lived phenomenon, so it pays to be prepared.

    Stick with a zoom lens rather than a prime, as this will give you the freedom to quickly experiment with a range of focal lengths.

    Think about the end points of the rainbow, as they will be where a viewer’s eyes will naturally be drawn.

    In terms of settings, ensure you’re using a shutter speed that enables you to get sharp results when shooting handheld.

    Ideally you need to be shooting from a tripod, or at least have the camera well-braced.

    If you’re shooting a landscape, you’ll need to use smaller apertures to keep everything in focus.

    * Look for dark clouds to make a rainbow stand out, but check the exposure – the camera may be fooled into making everything too bright.
