What the rain does . . .

7 posts in this topic

I was out in the woods yesterday and made some pictures of flowers. And then it rained. And then I decided to go back and recapture the flowers as close as possible to the original compositions, but with the moisture. As you'll see, the lighting and comps changed slightly from some to some.

I've paired the images that are both dry and wet. The others are, well, others . . .

All with the Canon 30D and Canon 100 f2.8 macro, iso100-200, various apertures, all handheld, some with rests

Interesting comparisons. The light looks identical but I like the addition of the rain to these.

I agree, the rain makes the difference. The added texture is great. The wild plum is my favorite.

Thanks guys. I was especially happy the light was nice in the before and after shots so the comparisons could be very close. The skies turned partly cloudy so I could just wait for the right light. I used a diffusion disc on the before shots, and if I got impatient waiting for the light to change, using the diffuser again on the after shots to help things along evened it right out. gringrin

Plus, all the before and after flowers were within 50 feet of each other, which made it really easy.

Some of these look darker on my monitor after posting them than they did during pp. My bad.

Great stuff Steve! Water/moisture does bring a lot of different texture into a photo, thanks for sharing!

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
