Caught In The Rain by Janet Rogerson

My 10 year old Goddaughter happy to get wet for a photo shoot. Couldn’t wait for the rain so I used a hose. Experimenting with this whole OCF thing and having fun.

Two Off Camera Flashes used with Flashwave triggers.

Sigma EF DG ST on low power from behind model for a little rim lighting.

Vivitar 285 flash used 1/4 power to camera right with HONL traveller softbox attached.

Umbrella lined (out of sight) with some aluminium foil to bounce light back onto model.

Pentax K7 with 50mm 1.7 M-Series manual lens.
1/160 sec at about f/8 or f/11.
ISO 100

    Nicely done Janet, and thanks for the information you’ve added.

    Quite a fan of raindrops and flash, don’t get to see too many photos of that.

  • Ta John, it was an experiment that resulted in a wet 10 year old and a soggy softbox and flashgun but otherwise no harm done, even with the evil lighting ;)

    Janet this is great and imagine soaking a 10 year old in the middle of winter!!! I really like the color and effect withthe lighting.

  • Thanks Al, I love to play around with the lighting and experiment. In fairness to the 10 year old, it was February when we did this shoot. I’m not THAT mean to soak her in the middle of winter! And I made sure she had a nice hot shower afterwards because the weather still wasn’t that great.

    Great shot. You got the light just right well done.

  • Thanks Dennis. Had to experiment a bit to get the light right, but it was all good fun.

    Thank you for adding your work to The Best of RedBubble! Beautiful! You did an excellent job capturing the rain. It never shows up in my photos. They just look gray and dreary.
