Exercise: Rain

The final exercise asks us to produce a magazine cover to illustrate Rain.  Unfortunately, we have had unseasonably fair weather so I have resorted to a studio shot of a splashing rain drop.

The completed image has a reflection of a colourful umbrella to reinforce the connection to rain.  I have left plenty of room around the central part of the image to allow for the text that is necessary on a magazine cover so have thought about the practicalities of the brief as well as the shot itself.

Truth be known, I would have much preferred to have been out on a city street shooting reflected light in the glistening roadways but sometimes needs must.  Certainly setting up this shot took a lot of time and effort, but I am pleased with the finished result.
