Rain

30 Aug

The exercise was to produce a single strong picture for e.g. a cover of a magazine with the theme RAIN.

That is very difficult I felt as rain can have so many feelings to it. From the more melancholy rain and the feeling of tears=raindrops to summerrain which most people associate with summer, warmth and pleasure.

I opted to shoot those two pictures that are more  towards the melancholy feelings, one of my mother and the other one on a rainy summer day…actually midsummer with a lot of blank space for the title of the  magazines and other captions.

Alternatives could be the picture of a person playing/dancing in the rain during summer or taking the scene from the movie as inspiration why not making one dance in the rain on a street. A close up of a face in rain, could either be summer and sun or in the mountains with heavy jackets on.

Through a car window with raindrops on it focus on them giving a slightly blurred version of the persons face. In that case my mother who said that she never had a nicer portrait taken of her. And that was the truth she said!
