Not much time for taking new photos today … and as it’s raining… I have captured the rain with the old nifty 50. In the first image I wanted to capture the raindrops on my window – essential for this was a wider aperture – shallow depth of field so that I the garden in the background was out of focus.
Next I got down low and tried to capture the raindrops on the patio … I kept to a shallow depth of field as I aimed to focus on a particular area of the patio, with the idea that the background would be blurred out and the detail would be where the raindrops landed.
This one had much better timing, but raindrops are totally unpredictable, there is not regular timing, no regular landing spot – so getting the right shot is down to trial are error….
Ideas for the future:
- Capturing drops
- Capturing rain – grey lines of water … so you can tell it is raining
- Looking in raindrops … reflections!
