Looking at the picture above, don't be discouraged, KEE friends. Because it turns out you can also make photos like that, it's not difficult. Let's see how:

A : Set the focus on the main subject

B : Use Aperture Priority AE mode and use a large aperture on the aperture

C: Photo by firing the flash on the camera

D : Increase the ISO and use a fast shutter speed

E: Shoot several times to get the best results

You can produce photos with different sensations with this technique. You can photograph ordinary raindrops but the grains will look small. You can get around this by firing a flash. It is recommended to use a fast shutter speed so that the bokeh on the rain drops does not become blurry. You can also use this technique to photograph snow.

In the left image the raindrops are not visible.

In the image on the left, manual exposure is used (f/8, 1/13 sec). With a large f number, the small openings of the raindrops do not appear as circles, only as streaks and blurs.

In the image on the right, manual exposure is used (f/2.8, 1/200 sec). With a small aperture number, a large aperture of bokeh circles is clearly captured.

It will really help you to use a fixed lens with a large aperture because usually shooting at night requires a large aperture and a high ISO. For example, the Canon EF24mm f/2.8 IS USM or EF-S24mm f/2.8 STM lens.
