Burma Monsoon Photography Tips  ?

01-  Should you check weather forecasts for Myanmar Monsoon Photography Tours ?
Depending on what you’re chasing after, like fast-moving rain clouds or thunderstorms, schedule your shoot when and where it’s expected to take place. Radar apps are also of great help to many storm chasers, so you may want to download weather apps like MyRadar Weather Radar.

02-  Prepare and bring the Right Gear

When shooting under harsh and extreme weather conditions, you’ll definitely need a few other things aside from the stuff that you regularly have in your camera bag.
A-     Protective Gear
The first, most obvious type of gear you’ll need is protective gear for your camera and for yourself. These include the following covers and sleeves that are designed to keep you and your gear safe from rain, dust, and grime:
  • Waterproof Camera Bags
  • Camera Covers
  • Lens Covers/Sleeves
  • Microfiber Cleaning Cloths
  • Raincoats
B-     Shooting Gear
As for your camera gear, it’s highly advisable that you bring the following to ensure that you can capture great shots despite the unfavorable shooting conditions.
  • Professional Camera with manual camera settings
  • Tripod and weight bag to ensures camera safety and stability even in moderately windy shooting condition.
  • Multiple lens to enables you to shoot at varying focal ranges
  • ND Filters to blocks out more light, especially when shooting lightning bolts with a slow shutter speed during daytime
  • Shutter release to minimizes camera shake, provides convenience in taking slow shutter images and multiple frames (for time lapses, and HDRs), and enables shutter triggering from a distance
  • Lighting sensors and trigger -= Automatically triggers the camera shutter whenever it senses a flash of lightning.
  • Window mount of M your camera as close to a window as possible to allow you to take clear, sharp images from inside homes and cars
  • Extra batteries and memory cards

3-     Set the Ideal Camera Settings

The key to finding the right camera settings for every shooting situation .When you understand what these settings are for and how they affect each other (and your image), you can start from scratch and experiment until you eventually figure out the right settings for your DSLR or mirror less camera. At the same time, you can use the following recommended settings and tweak them to fit your specific shooting conditions:
A-     Focus
The focal point of storms are usually faraway clouds and lightning bolts, so you can either set your focus to infinity and back a little bit or you can auto focus on distant lights or the moon. Remember, you can have well-exposed images, but having your stormy skies out of focus can make you miss the point of the shot.
B-     Aperture
Your camera’s aperture (or lens opening) is another important camera setting that ensures that your scene is in focus. The rule of thumb is to keep it down at around f/7.1 to f/11, so the resulting depth of field will be large enough to keep your background and mid ground sharp.
C-      Shutter Speed
The shutter speed also helps keep your main image elements sharp, but there’s no ideal setting for it as it will depend on your aperture and the speed of your storm clouds—unless you’re shooting lightning bolts, in which case you’ll have better chances of capturing those by staying between the 5 to 10 second rule. As the skies get darker, you have the option to switch to bulb mode.
D-     ISO Level
As a general rule, you’ll want to keep your ISO at its lowest possible setting (while considering your other settings) to keep image noise or grain from ruining your images. Start at ISO 100 and work your way up from there, especially if you need to use faster shutter speeds to match.

E-    Start Shooting

Get to the location ahead of time, set your gear up, take your position, and aim. While you’re at it, let your instincts as an artist take the lead and try taking a variety of shots that will work well for your particular weather and subject.
F-      Compose Your Shots
There may not always be time for careful framing .Instead of photographing the same exact scene, try zooming in, zooming out, and even placing your main storm cloud or thunderbolt off center. Also, look for an angle that offers a clear, unobstructed view of the storm. Such seemingly simple adjustments can do wonders for your composition.
