You look out of the window and it's pouring down. Very frustrating and particularly so if you're a keen photographer with an itchy shutter finger. Don't despair, there are plenty of options. One miserable day earlier this year, I couldn't venture out so decided to experiment with some table top photography. I already had a continuous lighting system bought cheaply on a well known auction site but daylight or table lamps works just as well (colour casts are easily corrected).
