Photographing a rainbow is actually not difficult, as long as you know the tricks.

1. Time to shoot

Rainbows are usually found during the rainy season. Most rainbows appear in the morning in the western sky and the colors are better, while in the afternoon they usually appear in the eastern sky with softer colors and less contrast with the colors of the clouds and sky.

2. Composition

The composition when photographing a rainbow will usually be more interesting if it is seen from end to end. But usually it is more difficult to get because sometimes limited location can also have an effect. But you can overcome this by finding a spacious place and using a wide lens, 16mm or 17mm. If you use a smartphone, you can use panorama mode. You can also use the HDR (High Dynamic Range) feature to make your photos more contrasty.

3. Use PL filters

You can use a PL/polarizing filter to make the rainbow colors more attractive.
