The steady drizzle made it hard to go for a walk in the afternoon. I had an errand to run though, so I found myself out in the rain. Water and electronics still provokes anxiety, but my camera is “weatherproof” and I’ve learned to trust the meaning of that word. On the way back from the errand, I noticed rain drops all over the city’s flower pots, and I went to work. I shot a variety of flowers, both conventionally and with multiple exposures, and this one became my favorite image of the week.
Flower in the Rain
Fujifilm X-T2, Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R Macro, f/8 at 1/60, ISO 250.
Digital Darkroom. I only made minor changes to this image. After applying a Fujifilm Provia profile (Velvia looked too garish), I made small adjustments to constrast, shadows, blacks, and clarity. I ended by applying a square crop.
WIRR stands for Weekly Image Rich Ruh. This regular feature on Das Has von Ruh will show and describe my favorite photo created during this weekly period. My weeks start on Mondays, as does the WIRR. I’m hoping to include commentary on the story, the setting, the specs, or the sentiments, depending on the circumstances.
