How to Shoot Rainbows


I am having problems shooting scenes with optical effects -rainbows, for example. Any tips on this??

  Rainbows are hard to get to show up if the sky behind them doesn't have some dark clouds to make them stand out. Slightly underexposing may help - like half a stop.

  Also, I've heard that a circular polarizing filter may help bring it out, if you're using an SLR.

  Yes, a polarizer will help out immensely - but it doesn't have to be a "circular" polarizer. A linear polarizer will work just as well (for those of you who have a manual focus lens).
