News flash – it was raining in New Hampshire last Sunday. It seems like its been doing that a lot lately…and two engagement sessions scheduled to boot.
I called Joanna and Ryan – “What ‘cha want to do?” Not even a moment’s hesitation – “Let’s shoot in the rain!” was the response, then ” The rain won’t hurt your camera, will it?”
We met in Vaughn Woods State Park in Maine and had a great time. The light was pretty subdued ( almost nonexistent in the deep woods) so I used a small flash with a warming filter. Put the flash on a lightstand and remotely triggered it…instant late afternoon looking sun! We must have looked like quite a sight, wandering through the woods, pouring rain, slickers, rain boots, photo gear, laughing all the way! But it was raining pretty hard so there weren’t any others to either gawk or laugh at us.
As we emerged from the woods the rain turned torrential so we headed for a small picnic shelter to finish shooting.
Ok, so we all got a little muddy, but nobody slipped on the wet clay or went tumbling into the river, the camera equipment all still works and I’m thinking we ended up with some very fun photos – here’s a selection from the shoot.
