Last field trip to WA to work on my ongoing 'On The Verge' documentary almost everyday was overcast and raining at times. So I thought I should work on some strategies for getting the most out of less than ideal, dull light - and shooting in light rain! These conditions can actually create some really nice colours in muted lighting - the wind is often more of a problem than the rain...

This short piece was shot in the garden at Narooma - although most of the plants shown are WA grevilleas.

Technical stuff:

Shot on Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 7D & Panasonic GH1 (hacked)

Macro lenses:
Canon 90mm T/S 2.8 (+ ext. tubes)
Canon MP-E 65mm 2.8
Micro-Nikkor 200mm IF-ED 4

Edited in Adobe Premiere CS5
Grading was mostly done (as an experiment) using Adobe Camera Raw (via After Effects) with a touch of Magic Bullets here and there.
