For this exercise I had to design the cover of a magazine. I had the entire cover space to work with.
I was advised to
keep it simple
think of all the effects of rain that I have seen
I may not have to wait for a rainy day
make the images attractive/attractive.
Well as many will know we have not had much rain down here for the last six -10 weeks. In view of this I decided to try to take an image that would make people think about rain. What do most people have to protect them against the rain? A coat and an umbrella.
I chose to take some images of an umbrella but I didn’t want the pictures to be just standard pictures, so here are my results.
Flower in the rain
Flower in the rain 2
Dry Flower, or is it?
Did you guess?
So these are my images with water added as we have had no rain.
But as soon as I started writing this Blog, you guessed it, it started to rain.
I grabbed my kit and tried to take an image that a friend, Dave Rooney, had captured for a project he is undertaking, (see DJR 1 aday on Flikr)
BMW Roof Fin
I really enjoyed this exercise, I hope that my images are simple, interesting and attractive.
The roof fin was a last minute shot , it looks ok maybe it could go on the front of a design magazine.
