Rainy day – rainy night – out of turn post – hanging around with Ricoh GRii
I would like to put this series in the middle between my reportages from the recent trip to Geneva. The weather became very similar to what was waiting for me there with a small difference of a warmer air temperature. Rainy weather is my kind of favorite weather. Even this weekend I took a couple of my friends for a pre-wedding photo session and despite to the bad weather forecast and a heavy rain that lasted all night, we decided do not cancel our meet and to shoot in this extreme mood 🙂
A few words about the Ricoh GRii that i use every single day after purchasing it. I’m still in love with my old Canon 5dmkii outstanding full frame camera. I use it every time for works commissioned by my customers, but even then I have the Ricoh in my pocket available for the fast snaps always looks more storytelling possible because of the 28mm wide angle lens. I still have to learn some more tricks are coming from this camera. Recently learned to use internal slow flash for the low light condition band photography. Also, the manual focus is still too slow feature for me, but its worth to try to use it especially when the light is too low for the autofocus.
Anyway – lets return back to this “winter” weather! It’s not usual for our region. I’m always waiting for rainy days and when the rain is coming – you can’t not notice it. The weaser is in hurry here – everything is dramatic – if it’s rainy, so it’s pouring out and creates rapid flows and turns roads into canals. Ok, this time it was not too dramatic but still nice in the power of weather emotions.
Enjoy the wet streets !!!
