Central Park when it rains- this image was taken last week during my workshop in New York. As anyone who has done a workshop with me will tell you, I shoot during any type of weather, rain or shine, snow or hail, we'll find a way to get a shot. Why? Because that's what it's like to be a real photographer. Sometimes you don't have another chance to just postpone the shoot. Well, it called for rain the two days of the workshop and we got some awesome pictures because of it. True, there isn't blue sky and clouds in this shot, but you have to look at what we did get. We got Central Park EMPTY....how many times does that happen? I got beautiful streaking water down the trunks of the Elm trees. There's always something beautiful to capture, you just have to look for it.

Next Workshop: San Francisco, CA- May 29th and 30th
