I made this image at our Tuesday evening shoot. It had been quite cloudy with a drizzle of rain on and off all day. Unfortunately, not a great day for outdoor photography. The clouds started to clear about 6:30 p.m. and I thought we might have a chance to pull off our evening shoot. This is one of the first shots of the shoot. The clouds were breaking up just as the sun dipped below the horizon. The clouds took on this wonderful texture which served as a dramatic background for our bridal portrait. Light, of course, was supplied by the off-camera flash. No umbrella since the umbrella cuts down the light too much. You need all the light you can get for these sunset images. The rest is history - we got a great series of shots at the end of our rainy day.
