A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall, Nacogoches TX
Well this is pretty much the oppesite of a glamour shoot! We had a very strong storm pass through Texas yesterday and as far as I know we were lucky that there weren’t any major incidents. We were planning for the storm all day and it ended up not hitting us too hard. I was standing in the carport, watching a wave of rain come through and it hit me that I needed to practice my rain shots in case it’s ever raining on a wedding day. So I set up a couple of speedlites on stands, just as I would at a wedding, and begged Nini to go out and pose in the rain. The only catch was that we could only find one umbrella! And I needed it to prevent my lens from getting drops all over it! So Nini had to actually pose in the rain. She was not happy about it, but her attitude fit perfectly with the lighting I created.
I processed this photo in Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6. In CS6 I used a batch of actions that I recently purchased from http://www.florabellacollection.com
I was really impressed by the actions and have learned a lot about photoshop by going through and dissecting their actions and seeing all kinds of new tricks I never knew how to do before. Exciting!
Trivia question: Where’d I get the title for this post? Don’t google it!
