Rain Photography

Rain - Driveway Reflections
A few days after reading a great post on rain photography I had the chance to put some of the lessons I learned to work.  At dusk it started raining so I grabbed my camera and headed out to the front porch and started snapping.

Rain - Water Spout
I quickly realized that if I wanted to capture the great reflection and light that come from wet surfaces I needed to get up close and personal.

Rain - Reflection on a step
I was rolling around on the ground trying to keep me and the camera dry but also trying to capture interesting photos.  I was in my tiny home town, so I'm sure if any of the neighbors saw they'll be asking my parents about their crazy daughter soon.

Rainbow
One bonus of an evening of rain?  We woke up to a rainbow the next morning.

After reading Kat's post on rain photographt, I literally was "Waiting for the Rain to Come."

Thanks for the visual and the chuckle of you rolling around on the ground in the rain for the 'perfect pic'. Rain photography (reflection) is so interesting and fun to do. Love the rainbow pic.

That rainbow is amazing with that yellow tree in the picture and I love the running water out of the drain. And I would also love to see you rolling around trying to capture these shots!! I think it was very worth it!!!

Rain photographs are lovely, and somehow you feel clean and refreshed after looking at them too.

Well done...they're beautiful!! I haven't done much picture taking in the rain...I'm so scared I'll wreck my camera! (seeing your awesome shots, though, I need to get out there and give it a try :D)

Aren't some of the colors you get in the rain just amazing? These are just beautiful Jamie, and the rainbow? What serendipity!!

Kat Sloma said...

YAY! What a great reward. I love these photos, the simplicity of the light on the water is beautiful. And I love the idea of you getting soaking wet in the rain to get the shots! :) Thanks for the link back!
