    I so want to do this! With like rubber boots and rain coats and umbrellas. Then more of a wet tee deal going as we get more wet! lol

    But how do I protect my camera?

    I have a D3000 so maybe I should just wait until I'm ready to upgrade and go for it? or is there a protective sleeve or something?

    Set up a shoot with a sprinkler, and you are out of the range. Insta rain and your camera's dry

    There are cheaper rain sleeves than that option, although it looks like a tank horse. If you do a search on the forums someone posted like a $5.00 one or something not too long ago.

    You could use a water sprinkler to simulate the rain....

    I was nice and dry for this shot.


    Not so dry on this one, but employed the same principle.
