Spring-themed April showers portrait of Nikki

Don’t let the weather spoil a weather-themed portrait when you can be resourceful instead.

Of course, when you DON’T want it to rain, it almost certainly will, and when you DO want it to rain, the clouds withhold. Sometimes, when you have a specific image in mind, you have to be resourceful to make it happen. And sometimes, being resourceful leads to additional creative opportunities.

Yes, we wanted (and planned for) rain for this portrait, but when it didn’t come we simply got the sprinkler out. At least my camera (and I) stayed dry, and we were able to light the rain with a strobe flash, giving it amazing backlighting. Watch the video to take a glimpse behind-the-scenes.
