Being relatively new to the area, we are still in location exploration mode. Hmmm…. I guess when you think about it, being photographers we’ll be in this mode indefinitely. ;p Anyhow, we wanted to scope out a city-type location for an idea that’s been floating around (planning to shoot it soon!). If you aren’t aware, it rains practically every other day in the northwest… so rain or shine, we are outdoors – cameras under ponchos, yes we be stylin.
Below are a few natural light photos from a day of scouting… also read on for a tip on a cheap way to protect your gear in the rain.
As we left the house, it was super chilly and raining with a bit of slushy slurpee thrown in… so to tell you the truth, I was not too excited to shoot under those conditions (nothing makes me pee faster than brainfreeze and goosebumps lollercoasterz). But luckily, upon reaching the downtown area… the rain dwindled to a light sprinkle. 😉
Next time you sleep at a hotel, save the shower caps. They work great as rain cover for your DSLR. With the elastic, it’s a match made in MacGyver heaven.
Below: It was cold out.. but we warmed up afterward with the prettiest looking vanilla lattes I’ve ever seen. I don’t frequent coffee joints much so forgive me if I’m easily impressed… who knew baristas were so artistic! I would’ve asked for a transformer if I had known! =p
