If you ever dubbed in shooting landscapes photograph you know that cloudy skies make for a great dramatic scene. But what happens when clouds turn to rain?
Here is a smart solution: Equip your tripod with an umbrella holder. (and we don’t mean a shoot through brolli). It only takes a few brackets and clamps to make a nice looking umbrella holder, and I estimate this as a 1 hour project including the trip to Home Depot. This will definitely keep you dry as long as you remember to sand the heck out of that tripod.

P.S. Think landscapes will get you wet? Try capturing lightnings.
