Photography as Abstract – Raindrops on …..
I’ve seen lots of wonderful raindrop photos, and since we don’t get much rain here in Santa Fe, I really hadn’t thought about trying my hand at photographing them.
But a few days ago, it was raining on my walk. I had just shot some leaves that were stuck in a metal wire fence, when I saw some raindrops hanging on to the fencing that I thought looked pretty cool, so I got in close and took some shots.
When I processed the photos, I really liked what I saw, so yesterday morning when it was still wet out, I took my camera and tripod in search of more wet metal fencing.
I found some fencing a few blocks away and starting shooting. This is one of my favorites from those photos. A red car was in the background, which warmed that up, and the fencing was a blue grey metal, which gave the raindrops a blue tint to them. When processing the raw image, I upped the contrast and the black in the image to give it a more abstract feel.
