Once the damage is done it’s time to document the mayhem a storm leaves in its wake. Go get your discount digital cameras and start taking photos of anything and everything remotely interesting. My neighbor’s tree fell in my backyard and destroyed a lot of the property. sure, it’s a pain but I can definitely send in these photos to insurance (and if they don’t care enough to cover it I’ll just sent it to the local news and have my picture displayed for all eyes to see).
It’s a time for photojournalism. Go around your neighborhood and see what photographs you can get out of it. It’s good portfolio work and the photos can be used to help inform authorities as to what places got hit worst. Consider it your civic duty. And, if you’re actually very serious about photographing these kinds of events then you should invest in one of those amazing Canon DSLR cameras. They can have their setting adjusted so you can get clearer pictures in cloudy or stormy dark weather.
In fact, occurrences like these are the best time to start getting into photojournalism. Who knows, you might end up being the next big thing. That’s why having the best gear is the way to go. DSLR cameras are definitely capable of providing top notch work as long as you have an eye for framing.
