Got a chance to take some images at this event which happens in Charlotte, NC at the Rugby Athletic Center. I missed Thursdays games but managed to make it on Friday and Saturday. The weather on Friday was horrible and I had to use a rain coat for my camera and lens as well as one for myself. This was my first time photographing in heavy rain and I was pretty nervous considering I had a Canon 5D MK III and a 300 f4 lens under a $7.00 camera rain coat. The one I used was the OP/TECH USA Rainsleeve in 18”.
I am happy to report, it worked perfectly. Also, shooting in the rain is pretty fun, especially when it comes to full contact sports.
