Well, I learned how to protect my camera by using a bag tied around the body and the lens and I made sure I had a microfiber cloth to wipe away the rain. That didn't help me to get clean shots though. The weather went from raining to misting to just cloudy back to rainy again. What I wasn't prepared for was the low light situation making the photos come out as blurred as they did. Since I'm still pretty much a newbie I made the mistake of relying on the sports action mode. It just didn't have a fast enough shutter speed to capture the action clearly.
I tried some other shots with an increased shutter speed but still didn't get what I was looking for. I did like how the football on the ground came out though! Hah!
They didn't all come out this shaky but I wanted to show what happened.
