Have you ever tried to photograph the beauty of the sun’s rays shining through the clouds and been frustrated by the result?

I remember the first time I tried, over 15 years ago with my first digital camera, the Canon A40, and I got pretty lucky in that I got the shot before the moment disappeared!

Arjun Pai hasn’t been so lucky yet and was wondering how to be prepared to photograph the sun’s rays. Here’s Arjun’s question:

“I have been trying to capture rays of sun through clouds (like the image attached) and as you would understand, the moment does present itself on a daily and timely basis and even if does present itself, does not last for long. By the time you have your setting changed, tried a couple of shots, boom its gone. Would appreciate your thoughts and inputs on this”

As I explain in the video, how you go about this is pretty straightforward. Watch the video to get all the details!

Your camera is an amazing tool, but it’s no good to you if you don’t know how to use it!
