Get Inspired – Photograph The Rain

Spring is in the air. Okay here in Denver, we’re supposed to get snow this weekend. But rain is definitely in the forecast in the future, and can give you an incredible backdrop for photography.

Rain is an amazing resource.  Rain can alter the mood of a landscape. And it can inspire you to look a little deeper for romantic images. People will hide under umbrellas or dance under a falling shower. The view out a window can be reshaped by droplets creating intricate patterns.

After a rain shower, venture out and check out the vegetation and flowers. Capture the drops as they lay and how they create reflection and magnification.

Venture out and see how rain affects people. Watch as they stand with their umbrellas or how they run for cover.
