That's an interesting question. I would like to know it, too. So, if anyone could help out, I would appreciate it, too.

Thank you,
HTG

If you want to catch rain, you're going to need some fast shutter speeds OR longer shutter speeds and very short flash duration. Rain's terminal velocity is between 9-13m/s (32-47km/h) depending on who you ask.

If you're using a flash, dial down the power output which should shorten the flash duration. Have the shutter and aperture set to give you a black background (if that's what you're going for), and then adjust the flash power until you have enough power to illuminate the raindrops and also stop the action.

I really like the first shot you posted, the reflection is cool :)
