Camellia Bud After The Rain

Macro photograph of a Camellia bud with rain drops on it by Doug CouvillionNew photographers sometimes don’t realize cloudy days are great for getting photos with soft, even light.

The whole sky is like a giant diffuser.  It’s perfect for getting shots of flowers, insects, or just about any other subject that can be shot without including the sky in frame, even portraits.

After a recent rain I noticed everything was still wet.  Then I saw this Camellia bud covered in rain drops and thought it made a worthwhile subject.

Enjoy your day!
