Photographing Liquid Sunshine

Strolling around the yard this morning, plastic bag strapped to the camera to shield it from the drizzle, yielded the photos below. I’ve been attempting the photography rule of shooting lighter, edging the histogram to the right without clipping it off. When done, this supposedly creates better results since you’ve allowed more data to get to the camera’s sensor. Of course, this only applies if you are shooting in the RAW file format [think of it as a digital negative].  It also helps to drag your tripod around in the rain – hard to get good results when handheld with low light. Hence, I had to make two attempts – would have been easier to just use the tripod!
