Picking the Best
Typically, for a shot like this one below, I will shamelessly rattle off 5-10 photos in a row. I really enjoy the process of going back into Lightroom to pick out the best one. Only on a vary rare occasion will I just take one shot and have that one be a keeper! For this one below, there were many interesting versions, but I liked this one the best because of the expression of the woman on the right.
Daily Photo – Two Traditional Japanese Women in the Rain
It was just about the perfect kind of rain in Tokyo this day. It wasn't a total downpour, but there was just enough so that almost everyone had an umbrella. This is the kind of rain I prefer to shoot in because I'm not constantly getting soaked myself. But since I had a manual-focus lens on, I really needed both hands. I was thankful for Matthias to hold an umbrella over my while I did my thing!
