Capturing Rain

Had a heck of a downpour here tonight... Ran out with my DA 16-45/4 and captured a few shots. The new firmware did well with the shake reduction, but sadly my skills at capturing the impression of rain and the power of the wind and water coming down were lacking. The only couple of shots that were half decent (and not from an artistic point of view) are below.

Time to look up other images of rain and weather and see how other, better photographers do it :)

Still learning a lot, myself, but definitely for starters, you need to use a tripod so you can experiment with different exposure/aperture intervals. Rain shots are traditionally most interesting with limited depth of field and isolated lighting. If you utilize off camera flash, try throwing one in a ziplock bag and experimenting with that.
