Rain in the Sun

ISO 100 ~ f/10 ~ 1/125th ~ 135mm

No, I didn't get my camera wet... :)

  • Wow, that's beautiful!

    I don't know how you did it. My rain pictures turn out looking like a misty mess of nothingness.

    Um...How DID you do it?

  • Faith:
    Well, it's an old trick, and one that did not originate with me, unfortunately. :) Basically, all I did was set my camera to shutter priority so that I could control the shutter speed (for rain blur effect), and then had Mom mist a garden hose over the flowers while I shot indirectly towards the sun. (to make the water drops glow)

    Since it is really not raining, and you can zoom in to frame the flowers, there is no danger of getting your camera wet, and there is plenty of light to work with.

  • So you mean it's FAKE? It's not REALLY raining?

    I never heard about doing it like that before, but it is a cool idea. It's alway neat to learn new camera tricks, and this one really got me. I NEVER thought to fake rain! It looks great!

    Happy Fouth of July!


    P.S. Is it possible for you to photograph fierworks?

  • Yeah, sorry, it's fake.... :)

    Thanks, A Happy Fourth to you too!

    And lastly, yes, it is possible to photograph fireworks, though I have never really tried myself. :)
