Behind The Lens

Location
This picture was taken at one of the wedding i attened this summer, near river Daugava.
Time
It was a middle of a rainy summer day .
Lighting
I didn't use any artificial light , i managed to take the shot about a minute before a storm started .
Equipment
I used Canon 5d mark II and Canon 70-200 f2.8.
Inspiration
I saw the epic storm clouds approaching and it was 2 second decision to take the shot, because it started rain like hell in about a minute after this shot was taken. And it got really crazy after that me and bride and groom had to run to the limo to not get fully wet. This was one of the funniest wedding moments this summer. And this shot will always remind me that one minute is still enough to take a good picture before the storm :)
Editing
I did a very little post process just brightened someshadows and added sharpness and a little bit of contrast.
In my camera bag
Depends on a occasion for big wedding like this i have two of my cameras 5d mark II and 6d , and couple of lenses 50mm f1.4, sigma art 35 f1.4 , Sigma 12-24, Canon 70-200 f.2.8 And my flash .
Feedback
Dont be affraid of using extreme weather in your advantige, it can lead to great shot. Like they say who doesn't take the risk , doesn't drink champagne.
