It's Going to be San Francisco in the Rain

The members of The Digital Story virtual camera club who are heading to San Francisco for the Street Shooting Workshop have packed their rain gear and are ready for a true urban adventure.


Gritty streets, wet pavement, colorful umbrellas... we might work harder over the next few days, but the payoff is going to be excellent. All of our Think Tank Mirrorless Movers have an excellent weather-resistant design and rain covers as well (every workshop participant gets their own bag).

My Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II is weather resistant as well, as are the lenses that I'm packing with it. I've added a protection filter to the front of each optic so I can wipe it off easily in the rain.


Plus, I'm bringing my red Olympus TG-4 that not only is totally weather resistant, it will geotag all of my images. The TG-4 captures in RAW, and its image quality is excellent.

We're also going to add some inspiration to our week by visiting the Diane Arbus exhibit at the newly renovated San Francisco Museum or Modern Art. Each workshop participant receives a full general admission pass to SFMOMA as part of their tuition. And we have our reservation there for first thing Friday morning. That will get the creative juices flowing.

I'll let you know how we fare in the rainy weather. And we'll be sharing images as well. So stay tuned.
