Rain, Rain

You know you live in Southern California when you think more about how good an umbrella will look in pictures rather than how well it will function in the rain.  Because it seems to rain so little here that we have to do a little puddle splashing shoot every time it does.

*** Canon 5D Mark II, 50 1.2

F 2.8, 1/1600, ISO 800

*** I definitely could have lowered my ISO here and then, in turn, lowered my shutter speed.  Sometimes when you are capturing a moment you forget about your settings to make sure you get the shot!

Love these umbrellas I picked up at Target.  I actually bought one in Indiana when I was there for the Mpix shoot, but couldn’t get it home.  So, I had to go to Target and buy two more for my kids.  Love them for shoots because they don’t cast any weird shadows or color casts since they are clear.  The look good and they actually function well :)

Hope you are enjoying the weather wherever you are!
